Exclamation Main St. Bridge to Close 11-17!

Main Street Bridge to Close Nov. 17th!

Christopher Welsh, Project Superintendent for Economy Paving Co., Inc. of Cortland is now in charge of the Main Street Bridge destruction and construction. Their plan is to close the Bridge to vehicle traffic starting on Thursday, November 17, 2011.

The demolition and construction plan is as follows. At first, the south side of the current bridge will be left open to pedestrians. In the meanwhile, a separate pedestrian bridge will be constructed by mid-December before the current bridge is completely closed to pedestrians. Then, the Bridge demolition will take place by the end of the year. Mild winter weather permitting, the new bridge will be completed by August of 2012.

The net impact to the village is not having a minimum of thirty days notice, as previously planned. That time would have provided the school, businesses, and residents of Oxford time to adapt to new driving patterns, finalize emergency response plans, and get used to general construction inconveniences. It is in the interests of everyone, however, that the village avoids further delays for the bridge replacement so it can be completed within a single winter period.
