Broadway Bridge Meeting is Tonight

If you’ve got a question about the upcoming renovation of Fulton’s Broadway bridge, a project that will close half of the bridge for nearly two years, tonight’s the night to ask.

The State Department of Transportation will go over the project in detail at a public meeting at 6:00 p.m. in the Common Council chambers of Fulton City Hall.

The building is handicapped-accessible.

The bridge will remain open during the project, which will span two construction seasons, beginning in spring of 2012.  However, two lanes of the four lane bridge will be shut down.

That will slow traffic through the city and force more of it to the two-lane Oneida St. bridge.

The largest impact may be on pedestrians.  Sidewalks will be open from spring to fall, but not during the winter.  The state may operate a shuttle bus to get people from one side to the other.
