DOT Provides Updates on Two CNY Bridges


The state on Friday announced the reopening and substantial completion of the $4.7 million replacement of the Canton Street Bridge which carries local traffic over the New York State Thruway in the Town of Warners in Onondaga County. With the reopening of the Canton Street Bridge, crews will begin construction in the coming weeks on a $7.3 million project to replace the nearby Warners Road Bridge (milepost 292.49) over I-90 in the Town of Warners.

Originally built in 1954, the Canton Street Bridge (milepost 292.06) carries approximately 2,000 vehicles per day. Safety improvements on the new bridge include an increase in vertical clearance to 16’6” from 13’11”, standard travel lanes and shoulders, a new guide rail, reflective line striping, and continued pedestrian access.

The current Warners Road Bridge was built in 1954 and carries approximately 3,000 vehicles per day. The new bridge will have increased vertical clearance from 14’3 to 16’6” to meet current standards, standard travel lanes and shoulders, pedestrian fencing, improved sight distance at the intersection of Brickyard Road over the Warners Road Bridge, reflective line striping, new guide rail and a new riding surface.

“The Canton Street Bridge and Warners Road Bridge are essential links in the town’s transportation network, connecting residents and businesses in the community,” Governor Kathy Hochul said. “These projects are two of the hundreds of bridge restorations that we are investing in across New York State to ensure our infrastructure is safe, reliable, and accessible for all New Yorkers for decades to come.”

State Senator Rachel May said, “It’s exciting to see the result of the significant investments we’ve put into infrastructure projects in our state. With the completion of the Canton Street bridge rehabilitation, Central New Yorkers now have a safe and dependable way of getting to I-90. This is critical because many residents rely on the Thruway for quick access to places throughout the region. Thank you to Governor Hochul, the Senate Majority, and the New York State Thruway Authority for the recent improvements to many roadways in our area.”
