BATH | Six aging Steuben County bridges will be rebuilt this summer with new beams and paved black top.
Steuben County Department of Public Works Commissioner Vince Spagnoletti said the bridge upgrades will cost about $788,000, without adding labor and equipment costs.
Work will begin April 1 on two bridges: one over Troups Creek in Troupsburg and the other over Slate Creek in Hartsville, officials said.
The Troupsburg bridge - on Cook Hollow Road - will have an off-site detour while the work is being completed, Spagnoletti said. The Slate Creek Road project will include an on-site detour. Those projects are expected to be completed in mid-June.
“I guess it’s alright,” said Troupsburg Town Supervisor David Newberry of the project, which is expected to cost about $237,000. “But I think there are better places to spend the money.”
Steuben County bridges scheduled to be upgraded this summer, the cost and expected start time are:
Cook Hollow Road, over Troups Creek, Troupsburg - $237,000 - April 1
Slate Creek Road, over Slate Creek, Hartsville - $62,000 - April 1
County Route 127 over Camp Brook, Woodhull - $97,000 - May 1
Taggart Road over Cold Brook, Town of Urbana - $115,000 - mid-June
County Route 71, over Tuscarora Creek, Jasper - $152,000 - mid-July
North Clendenning Creek, over Glendenning Creek, Lindley - 126,000 - late August
