Ontario County will be closing the Tileyard Road Bridge located in the town of Gorham on September 11, 2023. The road closure is required to allow our contractor replace the bridge. The bridge is located just west of the Seneca town line. The posted detour will follow Goose Street, Charlton Road, and Old Mill Road to Mott Road. The bridge is tentatively scheduled to be reopened in mid-June of 2024. A map of the project detour is enclosed.
The existing bridge is in poor structural condition, lacks shoulders and cannot adequately convey stream flows during a 50-yr storm. The project will replace the bridge with a longer 90-ft span steel multi-girder bridge supported on integral abutments. The new bridge will feature 11-ft lanes and 5-ft shoulders, providing improved safety for motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists. Along with the increased span length, the bridge will also be raised approximately 2.75 ft to provide 2 ft of freeboard under the structure during a 50-yr storm.
