The New York State Department of Transportation will hold a public information meeting to discuss the bridge carrying State Route 96 over Catatonk Creek in the Village of Spencer, Tioga County. The meeting will be held on March 22nd in the Spencer-Van Etten Middle School Library, 1 Center Street in Spencer.
NYSDOT personnel will be on hand starting at 6:30 p.m. and a formal presentation will begin at 7 p.m. The presentation will provide an overview of the project and will present the preferred alternative and the options to maintain traffic during construction. The presentation will be followed by a question and comment session, in which members of the local community are encouraged to participate.
Based on design analysis, replacing the bridge is the preferred alternative. There are two feasible alternatives for maintaining traffic during construction: use of a temporary on-site detour bridge and use of an off-site detour.
Construction is currently scheduled to begin in the summer of 2014 and is expected to last approximately one construction season.
Some right-of-way acquisitions are anticipated to complete this project. A representative from the NYSDOT Regional Real Estate Office will be at the meeting to answer questions about the property acquisition process.
Public involvement is essential for the development and delivery of all transportation projects. NYSDOT encourages attendance and input as this project moves forward through the project development process.
Those who cannot attend this meeting, but have questions, comments, or would like to discuss the project in further detail, should contact the project manager, Brian Doak, at (607) 721-8225; or by email at PIN904701@dot.state.ny.us. Written comments may be submitted to: NYSDOT, Region 9, 44 Hawley Street, Binghamton, NY, 13901. The project web site is www.NYSDOT.gov/96BridgeSpencer.
