Fairport Lift Bridge

Village of Fairport

It will take a little longer to reopen the Fairport Lift Bridge which spans the Erie Canal. The bridge closed for repairs in Sept. 2019.

Originally, repairs on the 105-year-old bridge were expected to be completed in November, but officials with the New York State Department of Transportation say that they are facing construction delays due to supply chain issues and being able to get certain parts.
