The $7 million replacement of two 60-year-old bridges— the 150-foot-long Lows Corners Bridge carrying Route 55A over Rondout Creek, and the 50-foot-long Sugarloaf Bridge carrying Sundown Road over Sugarloaf Brook—has been completed, MidHudsonNews.com reports.
The two bridges are located at the upper end of Rondout Reservoir in Sullivan County, New York.
“Projects like this are important for the operation and maintenance of our water supply, and for local motorists who travel roads around Rondout Reservoir every day,” Acting New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Commissioner Vincent Sapienza told the news agency.
Replacement work began on the two bridges in May 2016. The DEP owns, operates and maintains both bridges, as well as 55 other bridges and 99 miles of roads throughout New York’s upstate water supply system.
