Madison Ave. bridge to reopen Friday, June 28


After several months of construction, Elmira’s Madison Avenue Bridge will reopen on Friday, June 28.

Chemung County Commissioner of Public Works Andy Avery tells 18 News that both lanes will be open and that pedestrians will be able to cross as well.

Avery adds that there will be lane shifts through July until August 9 to complete the work, which began in March 2019.

Elmira Mayor Dan Mandell told 18 News in March that the work being done to the bridge should prevent any other work being needed for the next 15-20 years.
