Village of Brockport Bridge Closures
The New York State Canal Corporation and the New York State Department of Transportation announced on March 17, 2023 that the Park Avenue Lift Bridge over the Erie Canal in the Village of Brockport, Monroe County, will close to vehicular and pedestrian traffic on Monday, March 27, 2023, to facilitate repairs to the bridge’s lifting mechanism. A routine seasonal maintenance inspection of the Park Avenue bridge turned up two damaged anchor cables (that connect to the counterweights). The work is expected to take approximately six weeks and the bridge will be in the raised position during that period.
Motorists and pedestrians are advised to use the nearby the State Route 19 (Main Street) Lift Bridge throughout the duration of the repair. To minimize traffic impacts, NYSDOT has postponed the start of a full rehabilitation of the State Route 19 Lift Bridge from April until mid-May.
The Canal Corporation and the Department of Transportation appreciate the public’s patience while these projects are completed. The village will provide updates as the work progresses and post them on the Bridging Brockport webpage and the Village Facebook page.
