West Main Street Bridge re-opens, State of Emergency lifted in Frankfort

By HILARY LANE

FRANKFORT, N.Y. (WKTV) - The West Main Street bridge in Frankfort is now open and the State of Emergency that had been issued for the Village on Sunday after strong storms moved through the area has been lifted.

Flash floods on Monday caused the water level in the Moyer Creek to rise and flow onto the West Main Street Bridge.

Workers from National Grid and local police surveyed the bridge Tuesday morning and said they found it safe for local traffic.

Frank Moracco, Mayor of the Village of Frankfort, was concerned about a gas line that runs alongside the bridge. Because debris was displaced into Moyer Creek, it was possible the debris would put pressure on the line, causing it to rupture. National Grid has fully examined the line and deemed it safe.

With rain in the forecast later this week, the mayor will be keeping a close eye on the creek, but for now, traffic on the bridge is moving as usual.
