A statement from New York State Department of Transportation officials Friday said:

“The Route 250 (Main Street) Lift Bridge was initially expected to re-open to traffic this November, but is facing construction delays due to supply chain issues. We now expect the bridge will re-open to traffic as early as February 2021. We will continue to communicate with the Village on our progress and will provide any further schedule updates to the community as needed.”
