MILFORD - The replacement of a bridge in Otsego County has been completed just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced today.

The replacement of the State Route 28 bridge that crosses over State Route 7 and the Norfolk Southern Railroad in the town of Milford was a $1.7 million project. Construction on the project began September 5 and it opened to traffic today.

According to Cuomo, the new bridge is a two-span structure that’s supported by steel and concrete beams, with 12-foot travel lanes and eight-foot shoulders in each direction.


"Beginning today travelers in Otsego County will have a safer commute thanks to this critical bridge replacement project,” said state Assemblyman William Magee in a news release. “This infrastructure investment is a good example of the State's focus on improving transportation and safety, and I commend all those involved in its timely completion on a job well done!"

Approximately 5,200 vehicles travel across the bridge each day, according to Cuomo.
