Seven months after construction work began on the Route 38 bridge over Fall Creek in Freeville, it’s now been officially reopened to all traffic.
That comes after completion of a $4M project by the New York State Department of Transportation, which replaced an aging structure that serves as a primary route between Cortland and Ithaca.
D.O.T. Acting Commissioner Marie Therese Domingue said the following when work commenced in May:
“This new bridge is replacing an aging structure that serves as a critical link in the Tompkins County community. The project exemplifies how Governor Cuomo is working with local communities to make smart transportation investments that enhance mobility and promote economic growth to help keep the Southern Tier Soaring.”
