Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) today announced an update regarding the Route 98 Lift Bridge in the Village of Albion. An evaluation of the bridge took place recently, and it was decided that Wednesday, March 25 is the scheduled date to begin repairs. The bridge will be closed to traffic for an estimated two to three weeks. 

            “I am pleased to see that these repairs remain on schedule and motorists will only be inconvenienced for three weeks at the most,” Hawley said. “This bridge is frequently used by families and businesses who deserve to feel safe as they travel. Much of New York’s infrastructure is in desperate need of repair, and I plan to advocate for increased funding during this year’s budget negotiations.”

            Due to the construction, truck traffic will be detoured using Route 387 (Fancher Road) via Routes 31 and 104. Regular automobile traffic can cross the Erie Canal at Ingersoll Street.  Bicyclists and pedestrians can cross the bridge at the discretion of construction workers. For questions regarding the repairs, please contact Engineer-in-Charge Scott Sullivan at (585) 589-6655.
