Agreement Authorized for Dodge Road Bridge Reconstruction

Tuesday, August 21, 2018

The Legislature, by unanimous vote, authorized the County to execute an agreement with the Town of Dryden for reconstruction of the Dodge Road Bridge over Cascadilla Creek. (Legislators Mike Sigler and Leslyn McBean-Clairborne were excused)  The agreement funds reconstruction of the bridge and delegates future responsibilities for maintenance.  The project will replace the existing bridge, built in 1935, which is considered “scour critical,” meaning its foundations could be unstable in flood conditions.  Silverline Construction, Inc. was awarded the construction contract last month.  Total project cost is $567,015, with the Town of Dryden supporting 20% of the cost ($113,403).  The design and bidding process have yielded costs 23% below those anticipated, translating to a $138,388 saving in the County’s share.
