ALBION – Many people were hoping to see history today with the lifting of the Main Street bridge by crane, and seeing it moved to land north of the canal.

Onlookers will have to wait a little longer because the lift has been pushed back due to the weather today with snow in the forecast.

The state Department of Transportation said the bridge lift will likely be later this week but doesn’t have a set date yet.

Crane-Hogan Structural Systems in Spencerport is general contractor for the project and has brought in a very large crane to move the trusses of the bridge.

The company will be doing a major rehabilitation of the bridge from 1914. The span has been closed since Nov. 14 for a repair project expected to last 18 months.
