Three bridge projects will be on the agenda when the Oswego County Legislature meets March 15.
The projects under consideration for this year will include the County Route 55 bridge over Ox Creek in the Town of Granby. The bridge is listed on the highway department’s rehabilitation plan and is scheduled to be replaced and updated.
The bridge has no approach railing, substandard bridge railing, and roadway width. The resolution legislators are asked to consider would transfer $440,000 from a capital reserve fund.
A $350,000 budget transfer from the capital reserve fund is also being requested for the replacement of the Kranze Road Bridge over Sage Creek in the Town of Mexico.
The bridge received a red structural flag in 2006 for structural steel deterioration.
The bridge is currently posted for eight tons and has no approach railing and substandard bridge railing.
The bridge needs to be replaced to eliminate the load posting and to update the approach and bridge railing.
