Reminder issued on bridge meeting

The New York State Department of Transportation will host a public information meeting on Wednesday from 4 to 6 p.m. pertaining to a proposed bridge replacement project scheduled to begin next spring on State Route 5 over Canadaway Creek in the town of Dunkirk.

The informal, open house meeting will be held at Dunkirk Town Hall, located at 4737 Willow Road in Dunkirk. The session will feature displays about the project and provide an opportunity for discussion with NYSDOT representatives, who will be available to receive comments and answer individual questions. No formal presentation will be made.

The existing, single span State Route 5 bridge over Canadaway Creek was constructed in 1929.

The purpose of this project is to replace the existing bridge with a single span, steel plate multi-girder superstructure with a composite reinforced concrete deck that will address structural deficiencies, streambed deterioration and reduce scour vulnerability of the structure. The design life of the new structure is 75 years.

For further information, or to request a sign language interpreter or assistive listening system, please contact Kelly Schuman, regional structures engineer, at (716) 847-5243, or write to the New York State Department of Transportation, 100 Seneca Street, Buffalo, New York 14203, and reference Project Identification Number 5134.53.
