Madison County to receive $2.17 million for rehabilitation of Solsville Road bridge


The Madison County Highway Department will receive $2.17 million for the rehabilitation of the Solsville Road bridge over Oriskany Creek.

State Sen. Rachel May, D-53, Syracuse, made the announcement Tuesday as part of the Bridge NY project, which has awarded $216.2 million statewide to repair and replace local bridges and culverts in every region of the state.

“I am always happy to announce new funding to improve critical infrastructure in my district,” said May. “Our aging bridges pose a risk to our residents and the state must support rehabilitation and replacement to ensure safety for everyone. This investment will serve the people of Madison County well.”

This announcement builds upon the nearly $500 million statewide previously awarded to local governments under this initiative to enhance the quality of life for residents and businesses across the State.

The “BRIDGE NY” awards were made through a competitive solicitation process and will support all phases of project delivery, including design, right-of-way acquisition and construction.

Projects were selected based on criteria that included the structural condition and susceptibility of the bridge or culvert to flooding and/or scour; the significance of the bridge or culvert based on detour considerations and the number and types of businesses served; benefits of the corridor on Environmental Justice Communities; and the overall impact on the movement of commerce.
