State to host public information meeting on bridge replacement project on Route 430

MAYVILLE — The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) will host a public information meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 16, from 4-6 p.m. at Chautauqua Town Hall about a proposed bridge replacement project scheduled to begin in spring 2021 on Route 430 over Dewittville Creek in the town of Chautauqua. Chautauqua Town Hall is located at 2 Academy Street in the village of Mayville.

The informal, open house meeting will feature displays about the project and an opportunity to discuss it with NYSDOT representatives, who will be available to receive comments and answer individual questions. No formal presentation will be made.

The project proposes to replace a single-span, steel, thru-girder bridge that was originally constructed in 1937. A new single-span, steel, multi-girder structure will reduce scour vulnerability, improve stream alignment and improve the structure capacity over a design life of 75 years.

In addition, stream stabilization will be performed utilizing heavy stone fill with willows and rock vanes along Dewittville Creek on the northeast quadrant of the bridge.

The proposed bridge will be built on the existing alignment. Traffic will utilize an off-site detour during construction to minimize the project duration. The project is scheduled to be completed in fall 2021.

For further information, or to request a sign language interpreter or assistive listening system, please contact Norm Duennebacke, regional structures engineer, at (716) 847-3204, or write to the New York State Department of Transportation, 100 Seneca Street, Buffalo, NY 14203, and reference Project Identification Number 5040.19.
