Webb's Crossing Road Bridge to Open Soon

The new five-girder concrete bridge on the Webb's Crossing road over the Canisteo River, is expected to be open to the public by the end of the week.

The Hornell Construction Corp.. which began the $129,000 project July 23, 1956, is putting the finishing touches on the job today. Guard rails are being painted and the shoulders of the Bridge approaches are being landscaped.
The work proceeded according to schedule and is being completed in advance of the Aug. 1 termination date stipulated by the New York State Department of Public Works.

Constructed to an elevation which will eliminate flooding of the highway, the new bridge is 113 feet long with a curb-to-curb width of 32 feet and with 20-foot wide approaches.

Blacktop surfaces both the two-span structure and the approaches leading to it.

The new bridge replaces a truss-type structure which was 14 feet wide and had a four-ton limit.

Work of the Bridge has necessitated a two-mile detour from a point near the Burkhart Hotel on the Arkport road. across the Erie Railroad tracks and along the railroad south on Sanitarium Rd. The detour has been in use for approximately the past year.

Damage done during the past weekend to the DeLuxe Bowling Alleys at 42 Broadway and the rifling of an automobile have been admitted by two youngsters, Hornell police said today.

In addition to the broken windows, the interior of the building was said to have been damaged. Stevens said his loss would amount to about $25. Golf balls taken from his car were recovered.

Sgt. Dillon and Acting Police Chief Carl R. Roosa said today that a further investigation of the case would be made and that parents of the boys may be held responsible for their damage.
