One Closed Binghamton Walkway Removed
A "Walkway to Nowhere" in downtown Binghamton finally has been torn down, several years after it was closed.
The pedestrian bridge on the west side of City Hall has been removed by crews from Gorick Construction of Binghamton.
State Street near the work site has been closed for nearly three weeks. Mayor Richard David said the street is expected to reopen by early next week.
The removal of the elevated walkway is part of a series of improvements planned for State Street just south of Hawley Street. Work on the rest of the project is expected to start later this year.
Speaking on WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program Tuesday, David said there are no plans to remove any other downtown pedestrian bridges at this time.
