Auburn city officials are set to host an open house on February 6, from 4 to 6 p.m. at Memorial City Hall, to discuss the Lake Avenue bridge rehabilitation project. This significant undertaking, involving a bridge constructed in 1954 over the Owasco River, has been allocated over $4.6 million from the state Department of Transportation through the BRIDGE NY program. This funding, announced in 2021, will cover the majority of the estimated $4.9 million project cost, with the city contributing 5%.
The open house aims to engage the community, allowing residents to learn about the project’s details and provide feedback on its potential economic, environmental, and social impacts. Representatives from the city’s engineering department and C&S Engineers will be present to offer insights and answer questions.
This session is part of Auburn’s efforts to involve the public in major infrastructure developments, following a similar meeting scheduled for January 30th about the Aurelius Avenue bridge replacement. For inquiries, residents can contact the city’s engineering office or email [email protected].
