The project proposes to replace the bridge on N.Y. Route 12E in the Village of Chaumont and the Town of Lyme in Jefferson County. Construction will be staged which will require alternating one-way traffic (with temporary traffic signals) for the duration of construction of the new bridge. Construction is anticipated to begin in the summer of 2022 and be completed in the fall of 2023.
The project involves minor property acquisitions. A representative from the Department’s Regional Office of Right-of-Way will be participating in the meeting to explain the acquisition process.
