The New York State Thruway Authority has launched a $2.5 million project to rehabilitate two 70-year-old bridges in Seneca County. The initiative focuses on the Interstate 90 westbound bridge over the Cayuga-Seneca Canal and the interchange bridge at exit 41 (Waterloo-Clyde-Route 414).


Improvements to the canal bridge, which sees 16,700 vehicles daily, include a new deck, joints, pavement repairs, and resurfacing. The interchange bridge, used by 2,150 vehicles daily, will receive new joints, concrete decking, and guiderails. Both bridges were originally built in 1953.

Slate Hill Constructors, based in Warners, has been awarded the contract, with completion expected by year-end. Thruway Authority Executive Director Frank Hoare highlighted the project’s role in modernizing infrastructure, noting the system’s ongoing reinvestment efforts, including a $395.5 million five-year capital program for central New York.
