Project is Located:

Project Description:

The project proposes to rehabilitate the historic Leeds Bridge that carries Main Street over the Catskill Creek. Work includes resetting the sidewalk stones, replacement of the approach railings, concrete patch repairs to the arches, re-pointing stone masonry at the base of the piers and re-surfacing the asphalt surface of the bridge. A cofferdam will be installed to divert the stream from the work area for the repairs to the piers. Work will occur in the dry. The work will be completed in three phases and will result in 610 linear feet of stream bank being disturbed by the cofferdams around the piers, with a total of 5,000 lf of the stream being dewatered. No permanent fill is proposed as part of the project. The classification and standard of the Catskill Creek at this location is B(t).
