Report of Meeting from Virtual Public Information Meeting: 0041-0121_ROM_VPIM
The purpose of the project is to is to address the structural deficiencies of State Bridge No. 00853, which carries Route 16 over the Salmon River in the town of East Hampton, and to provide a structure that accommodates safe travel for all facility users. The replacement bridge will be a steel plate girder structure with integral abutments. The proposed bridge will be a single span structure and have a span length of approximately 150 feet, eliminating the center pier. It also includes a widening of the roadway to provide a 32-foot curb-to-curb width.
There are right-of-way impacts anticipated with the proposed improvements. These impacts include temporary construction easements on each side of the bridge.
Construction is anticipated to begin April of 2026 based on the availability of funding, acquisition of rights of way, and approval of permit(s). The estimated construction cost for this project is approximately $10,000,000. This project is anticipated to be undertaken with 100% state funds during the construction phase.
