John Mason is reporting in the Register Star the Ferry Street Bridge in Hudson was inspected Thu., Feb. 5, five months after the city Common Council allocated $30,000 for an engineering study. Surveyors from Albany-based Creighton Manning Engineering and inspectors contracted to the New York State Department of Transportation took a close look at the bridge, examining the underside, taking photographs and and inspecting the steel beams. The surveyors from Creighton Manning looked at the area near the bridge to determine what dimensions a replacement bridge would require. The report is expected to be completed in 60 days. Built in 1905, the bridge is one of two access routes to Hudson’s South Bay waterfront area. During the past five years, the DOT has downgraded the bridge's capacity by 80 percent. In October, Mayor William H. Hallenbeck, Jr., suspended use of the road leading to and over the bridge due to safety concerns. Read the full story in the Register Star.
