New York State Department of Transportation Public Information Officer Bryan Viggiani said the Greene County bridges are included in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s program of upgrades and retrofits. The Route 42 bridge in Lexington carries an average of 850 vehicles per day. The 123-foot-long steel-truss span was constructed in 1928, and serves as a connector between Route 23A and Route 28. The Route 296 bridge in Jewett carries an average of 1,000 vehicles per day. The 105-foot steel-truss structure was constructed in 1932, and links the towns of Windham, Jewett and Hunter. It also links the local ski areas, Hunter Mountain and Windham Mountain.
