Three Bridges Near Rome To Close For Replacement


The New York State Department of Transportation is replacing three bridges at the southern end of the City of Rome.

The bridges, located on Routes 69 and 26, will close starting on Monday and will remain closed through the end of the year. Among the closures include Route 69 eastbound over Route 26 northbound, Route 26 northbound over Route 365 westbound, and Route 69 eastbound over Route 365 westbound.

Some portions of these roads will also close as part of the bridge replacements. Among them are portions of Route 69 eastbound and Route 26 northbound. The Lawrence Street ramp will also be closed, but will be detoured over Lamphear Road to Route 69 and Route 233 in Stanwix.

In their place, officials say short detours will be available along Route 69, Lamphear Road and Martin Street. A three-way traffic light and stop signs have also been introduced to maintain safety. As always, drivers are reminded to follow the rules of the road and be careful around construction sites.

The $5.4 million project is part of Governor Cuomo’s $17.3 million NY works contract to rehabilitate bridges throughout the Mohawk Valley and Central New York. In total, 13 bridges across the region will be replaced or rehabilitated.
