Work continues on the rehabilitation of the Broadway bridge in downtown Fulton.
Gene Cilentro of the state Department of Transportation said the northside deck has been poured and continues to cure. The decorative railing was poured Thursday and Friday and then it must cure over the course of a few weeks.
“The project is 85 percent to 90 percent done,” Cilento said.
He said the sidewalks will be the last parts of the project to be done. The sidewalk on the north side will be done first and then lamp posts will be installed.
Cilento said one that sets, the full four lanes will open and then the sidewalk on the south side will go, probably in mid- to late August.
The new sidewalk has a cure time as well.
In an effort to help local businesses and attractions reach potential visitors in the Finger Lakes region, the Oswego County Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning has offered to underwrite a portion of the cost of listings in the Finger Lakes “Go and Do” app.
The county tourism office is partnering with Cayuga Media, publishers of the Auburn Citizen, Skaneateles Journal and www.auburnpub.com, to offer a discounted listing on the app for one year.

Residents at Bishop’s Commons in Oswego have “adopted” standing planters that can be found near the walkways surrounding the residence, and have set about personalizing them to reflect each individual’s unique taste and preferences.
By adopting a 3-foot-high planter, each resident has selected his or her favorite things to grow — whether it be flowers or vegetables — and after planting has taken on the responsibility of making sure the planters are well cared for throughout the summer.
“The planter project has turned out to be a lot of fun for our folks, many of whom had enjoyed tending their own gardens throughout their lives,” said Cheryl Cullinan, director of activities.
“We supply the planters, dirt and tools while our residents picked out some of their favorite flowers or vegetables to plant; and have been caring for their planters’ diligently for the last few weeks,” Cullinan said. “The planters have become a source of pride and add to the overall attractiveness of the grounds around Bishop’s Commons.”
