The state has scheduled the temporary closure of a bridge in Fairport later this month.
The State DOT says that the Route 250 bridge over the Erie Canal in the Village of Fairport will temporarily close starting January 21st.
It will be closed for about six weeks while repairs are made to steel components that are deteriorating. The sidewalk will remain open to pedestrians and bicyclists.
The decision to make the repairs follows a recent inspection. A detour will be posted using Church Street, Turk Hill Road and High Street. There will be a separate detour for trucks.
The state says the repairs are needed to extend the life of that bridge.
