FALCONER, N.Y.: -- The Chautauqua County Department of Public Facilities (DPF) plans to open to the public the South Main Street Bridge in the City of Jamestown on November 21, 2018. 


“DPF thanks Union Concrete, GPI, the Jamestown BPU, the Jamestown DPW, and all those involved in this project who have worked through challenging weather conditions this fall so the bridge can be open to the public before the Thanksgiving holiday,” said Brad Bentley, Director of Public Facilities.  


The bridge’s asphalt base and winter wearing surfaces have been constructed and are sufficient for the travelling public to use.  However, due to the extremely wet weather this fall, high water levels experienced on site in October and the early on-set of winter conditions in November, the top asphalt layer will be constructed next spring.  In addition, bridge wall capstone and pavement lane markings will be installed before November 30, 2018.

DPF also plans to open to the public two new bridges on County Touring Route 42 / Poland Center Road, between New York State Route 394 and U.S. Route 62 in the Town of Poland on November 21, 2018.   


The asphalt base and winter wearing surfaces for these two bridges have been placed.  The extremely wet weather this fall and high water levels experienced at these sites delayed the construction of the new bridges, such that the top asphalt layer will be constructed next spring with the return of warmer weather.


“DPF understands the inconveniences these bridge projects have caused and appreciates the public’s patience and understanding as we work to improve the transportation infrastructure in Chautauqua County, “said Bentley.
