THE PINEVILLE BRIDGE IS OPEN - Local and state officials were at hand recently to celebrate the opening of the county Route 48 Bridge, otherwise known as the Pineville Bridge. The new structure replaces a century-old bridge that was removed last fall. It is wider than its predecessor and includes a concrete sidewalk for pedestrians and anglers to safely cross and access nearby public fishing areas.

ALTMAR - Construction on the county Route 48 bridge, otherwise known as the Pineville Bridge, is now complete. The new bridge opened on Thursday, October 27 and officials recently attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony where it crosses the Salmon River in the hamlet of Pineville.

"The Oswego County Highway Department appreciates the cooperation and patience of area residents and businesses as well as that of the visitors who frequent the Salmon River corridor," said Legislator James Oldenburg, District 14, chairman of the Oswego County Legislature's Infrastructure and Facilities Committee. "We are confident that this new structure will better meet the needs of the traveling public for many years to come."

The highway department worked with C & S Companies of Syracuse to oversee construction which was completed by Barrett Paving Materials, Inc. of Liverpool. The structure replaces a century-old bridge that was removed last fall. The new bridge is wider than its predecessor and offers a concrete sidewalk for pedestrians and anglers to safely cross the bridge and reach nearby public fishing areas.

The Oswego County Legislature's Infrastructure and Facilities Committee oversees the Highway Department. In addition to Legislator Oldenburg, the committee includes Vice-Chairwoman Barbara Brown, District 8; and Legislators Daniel Chalifoux, District 19; Mark Fruce, District 24; Linda Lockwood, District 11; Milferd Potter, District 2; and Amy Tresidder, District 16.
