Highway and Bridge Concerns

The Orleans County Legislature is very concerned about the aging bridge infrastructure providing access across the Erie Canal.  We are working to engage state stakeholders to address problems related to restriction of movement of automotive traffic, commercial truck traffic, emergency equipment and agricultural equipment. 

Interesting fact: Orleans County is home to over 40% of the lift bridges in the entire Erie canal system.
