Officials suspend use of Ferry Street Bridge

Oct 10, 2014 12:15 am
The city of Hudson has suspended use of the road leading to and over the Ferry Street Bridge. The bridge extends over the railroad tracks from lower Front St. to the city waterfront. Mayor William H. Hallenbeck Jr. and Common Council President Donald Moore announced the decision in a statement released at midday, Thurs., Oct. 9. According to the statement, the action was taking following a thorough review of the bridge and a conversation with the New York State Department of Transportation concerning the deteriorating condition of the bridge, and the projected results of an annual bridge inspection by the department. The inspection is scheduled to occur within the next 60 days. In January, the DOT officially downgraded the bridge's weight limit from five to three tons due to "significant deterioration," following the 2013 bridge inspection. The bridge was built in 1905. Until further notice, the Broad Street crossing will be open for waterfront events and activities. The pedestrian walkway to the side of the Ferry Street Bridge, which is not part of the bridge structure, will remain open. Read more at City of Hudson [dot] org.
