Project Description

The Route 35 Bridge to the Town of Courtland is now open to traffic, after a ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Thursday, October 15, 2015.

The project consisted of replacing the former two lane steel truss bridge with a two lane structure including shoulders, grading, paving and drainage on the asphalt approaches. The former bridge was constructed in 1928 and was structurally deficient and weight restricted.

The new bridge has the following features:

Decorative Bridge Lighting, chosen as an additional feature by the Courtland Business Panel
Widened roadways: 12’ lanes with 8’ shoulders
Bridge Clearance of 26’ above mean high water
Bridge length of approximately 900’ with approaches of approximately 400’ in each direction

There will still be some limited single-lane overnight closures on the bridge until the project is completed on November 30, 2015.
