Save the Bridge on Nelson Ave. Ext. over Northway

Marie Balet started this petition to NYS DOT Project Manager Richard Filkins

     We, the undersigned residents of the Towns of Malta, Saratoga and Northumberland, the Villages of Round Lake, Stillwater and Schuylerville, the City of Saratoga Springs and affected surrounding communities, respectfully request that the existing bridge crossing of Nelson Avenue Extension over the Northway not be closed.  We note that the bridge constitutes a vital link for daily access to employment, services of The Saratoga Hospital, City of Saratoga School District, fire and ambulance services, farm businesses, and recreational use.  If the bridge is not reopened, there will be a significant increase in traffic using Kaydeross Avenue East which is unsafe for additional motorists and cyclists.  We are cognizant of the fact that, due to the expense of bridge construction, once this bridge has been removed, it will not be replaced in our life-times.  We request that the bridge not be closed and therefore replaced using current bridge construction standards.
