Irondequoit Bay Bridge: Steel repair underway
Irondequoit, N.Y. - Steel repairs are underway on the Irondequoit Bay Bridge.
The State Department of Transportation said work on the repairs began last week, when the materials needed for the repairs were delivered.
Crews are placing steel cover plates underneath four floor beams to provide additional strength. Connector plates and other steel elements that showed signs of deterioration are also being replaced as part of the work.
The DOT said the bridge remains safe for all traffic. The outside travel lanes that have been closed since October are due to reopen by the end of March.
