Exchange Street Bridge Construction to Begin Shortly

Construction on the Exchange Street Bridge was supposed to begin earlier this spring, but will instead start in late August, or even early September.
 
The rehabilitation will include tearing up the concrete deck and replacing the steel underneath. Mostly funded by federal and state money, the city of Binghamton is responsible for 5 percent of the $3 million project. The reason for the delay? Reviews on the bridge's infrastructure have taken longer than expected.

Gary Holmes, Commissioner of public works said,"It's hard to estimate these things accurately at time because they look at the plans very closely. Because this is a critical bridge, we want them to. and it took a little longer than we anticipated to do. But I think it's a good thing to do. It really is."

The bridge will also be repainted, but that won't happen until next spring when the weather permits.
