UTICA, N.Y. – The Central New York Conservancy has completed a project to rebuild two historic bridges in Utica’s Frederick T. Proctor Park.
The bridges span the Starch Factory Creek and a tributary stream in the lower level of the park.
“These bridges are vitally important features of the park’s historic fabric, and their restoration will be useful both to pedestrians and to maintenance and emergency vehicles,” said Conservancy Executive Director Phil Bean.
The Conservancy used grant money to fund the project.
Both bridges were built in the 1930s by the Work Progress Administration.
This is the latest in a series of Proctor Park restoration efforts by the Conservancy, including the reconstruction of stone staircases and walls that had crumbled over the decades.
