A number of additional bridge and road repair projects are on the horizon in Syracuse now that common councilors have given their approval. The historic W. Genesee St. bridge over Onondaga Creek is slated for $1.5 million worth of upgrades. The limestone arch structure dates back to the 1800’s, so city engineer Mary Robison says the state’s historic preservation office is involved.
Robison says the bridge needs mortar repairs and other work, but is otherwise structurally sound considering its age. She says none of the bridges slated for repair are considered unsafe.
