Dickinson Pedestrian Bridge To Be Discussed

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

The future of a 45-year-old pedestrian bridge over Interstate 81 in Broome County will be up for discussion at a public information meeting.

The state Department of Transportation has scheduled the session for September 26 at the Dickinson town hall on Old Front Street. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and a presentation is scheduled to start at 7 p.m.

The east end of the pedestrian bridge is located near Otsiningo Park.

The span was constructed in 1968 and is nearing the end of its service life.

The deteriorating bridge does not have sufficient clearance over the highway and it does not meet requirements of the federal Americans with Disabilities Act.

DOT representatives will discuss the status of the bridge and options that may be considered to address future needs of pedestrians and bicyclists.
