ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) -- The Lowman Crossover bridge in Chemung County will re-open to travelers after being closed for more than a year.

Chemung County Executive Christopher Moss announced the bridge will open to traffic Thursday, June 16.

The bridge was closed for necessary repairs and improvements. Its opening was delayed by nearly eight months, due to supply chain issues that led to construction delays.  Work on the bridge included restoration of the piers and complete replacement of the superstructure. 

The Lowman Crossover bridge connects Interstate 86 and the hamlet of Lowman with downtown Wellsburg, on the Southern side of the Chemung River.
