FRANKFORT, NY - A plan to replace or repair 165 bridges and culverts across the state is going to cost New York taxpayers more than $262 million as part of the “Bridge New York” program.
In Central New York, the Village of Frankfort will receive $5 million for repairs to the West Main Street bridge over Moyer Creek that is the second-most expensive project in the state, and the highest in our area.
The goal is to accelerate the renewal and modernization of bridges and culverts statewide.

- $594,000 to the City of Rome (Oneida County) for Dewwy Road over a tributary to Wheeler Creek

- $1.868 million to the City of Rome (Oneida County) for Seifert Road over Wood Creek
- $691,000 to the City of Oneonta (Otsego County) for Main Street (NY Route 7) over Glenwood Creek
The “Bridge New York” program is administrated by the State Department of Transportation and is part of a $23 billion, multi-year capital plan.
