BREWERTON, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — In Brewerton, neighbors got to learn more about a State DOT project to replace the current Route 11 bridge that goes over the Oneida River and that links Cicero and Hastings.
Cicero town officials tell us that the plan that’s been approved by the Brewerton Revitalization Committee will rebuild the bridge while maintaining the super-structure, so that the character and aesthetic of the bridge are maintained.
Monday night was the public’s chance to learn more about the project while asking questions over the timeline and how it will affect people’s commutes.
“They would rebuild one lane of the bridge at a time, and mostly do it in such a way as to continue to allow boat traffic to move east and west as it is now. They’re not gonna stop that. They’ll put traffic control devices at each end of the bridge, red, green, yellow, right to continue to monitor traffic,” said Town of Cicero Supervisor Mark Venesky.
Venesky says they hope to begin work on the bridge in 2021.
