Storm-damaged bridge in Phoenicia can be fixed after all

PHOENICIA, N.Y. — The Bridge Street bridge, badly damaged during Tropical Storms Irene and Lee last summer, can be fixed after all and could reopen by early July, Ulster County Executive Michael Hein announced on Friday.

The bridge, one of two entrances to Phoenicia from state Route 28, originally was thought to be damaged beyond repair.

Hein, in a press release, said the firm Peak Engineering made the determination that the bridge can be saved, and he said the work probably will be done by county crews.
