New Grassy Point Bridge in Haverstraw Ensures Safety and Accessibility

In a momentous occasion, County Executive Ed Day, in collaboration with the County Highway Department and the Town of Haverstraw, marked the grand opening of the state-of-the-art Grassy Point Bridge in Haverstraw. This milestone was celebrated yesterday as the new bridge, which spans over the Minisceongo Creek, officially welcomed its first commuters.

The old Grassy Point Bridge, which carried Grassy Point Rd over the Minisceongo Creek, had long been a source of safety concerns for both motorists and pedestrians, as indicated by bridge inspection reports. These concerns prompted the initiative to replace the aging structure with a more modern and secure one.

Construction efforts commenced in November of the previous year, and after almost a year of hard work and dedication, the brand-new Grassy Point Bridge was unveiled to the public on November 29, 2023. One remarkable feature of this project was that the new bridge was built adjacent to the old one, allowing for uninterrupted traffic flow during the construction process.

One of the primary objectives of this project was to ensure that the new bridge could safely accommodate all legal loads, ensuring the safety and convenience of all who utilize it. Furthermore, it is important to note that while the new structure is now open to the public, the removal of the old bridge’s superstructure, along with some minor finishing work, is anticipated to be completed in the next few months.

This remarkable infrastructure achievement not only addresses safety concerns but also reflects the commitment of the County Executive, County Highway Department, and the Town of Haverstraw to improving the local transportation network. The new Grassy Point Bridge stands as a testament to their dedication to providing safer and more efficient travel for the residents of Haverstraw and beyond.
