Madison Ave. Bridge Rehab Project Moving Forward

ELMIRA, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - - Elmira City Council votes to move forward with one of several bridge rehab projects at its meeting on Monday night. Council voted to pass the resolution accepting the money which will fund the $2.4 million dollar project for the Madison Ave. Bridge.

The project will be covered by federal and state funds. Such funds will also go toward the rehab projects slated to happen at the Main St. and Walnut Bridges.

"It's great for us, we're getting not only Madison St. done, but we're also getting the Main St. Bridge done and also the Walnut St. Bridge done on the federal and state aid, so it doesn't come out of our tax dollars," City of Elmira Mayor Dan Mandell said. "It's going to upgrade that (Madison Ave.) bridge and give it the safety upgrades that it really needs."

Construction on the bridges is set to begin in 2019. For more information on the projects, click here.
