New York Department of Transportation Discusses Endwell Bridge Replacement


Bob Joseph/WNBF News

The New York State Department of Transportation is holding a public information meeting December 17 to talk about the planned reconstruction of the Route 17C bridge over Patterson Creek in the Town of Union. 

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. at the Union Town Hall with a presentation scheduled for 7 o’clock. 

The DOT says the 38 foot long bridge was built in 1932 and its original concrete beams are deteriorating.

The bridge has been widened since it was originally opened as a single-span T-beam structure and steel beams were incorporated.

Transportation officials say the bridge is not on piles and is supported by a concrete footer. One abutment has a crack.

While the span is nearing the end of its service life and requires increasing maintenance efforts to keep it open, the bridge is considered safe.

The project is currently in the preliminary design phase and alternatives are being developed and evaluated.

People who can’t attend the meeting and would like to discuss the project can contact the project manager, Michael Retzlaff at (607) 721-8204, by mailing remarks to the NYSDOT Region 9 Design Office, 44 Hawley St., Binghamton, NY 13901 or by email at

Questions or comments related to the public meeting should be received by December 31, 2013.
