The action involves adressing the functional condition of BIN 1013799 which carries NYS Route 17 over Neversink River and to improve this segment's standards to allow for designation of NYS Route 17 as Interstate 86. BIN 1013799 was built in 1953 and is now considered a priority deficient structure with a structural vulnerability rating of 1 (i.e. low condition rating and high traffic volumes). The bridge includes a Warren deck truss without redundant members. Existing travel lanes and shoulder widths are insufficient to meet future demands which may occur with potential commercial development. The overall accident rate for the project area is higher than the statewide average accident rate. The project is located on NYS Route 17 over the Neversink River in the Town of Thompson, New York.
