MURRAY – A bridge that has been reduced to one-lane traffic the past two years will be replaced with construction expected to start in the spring.

The Orleans County Legislature on Wednesday accepted a bid for $820,175 from the CATCO Corp. in Alden to replace the Monroe-Orleans Countyline Road bridge in Murray.

The project is 95 percent funded by the state through the BridgeNY program.

In other action by the Legislature on Wednesday:

• Authorized the county treasurer to set up new money in the highway budget due to a $546,977 increase in CHIPS (Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program). Those state funds will be used for road materials.

• Approved the following four-year appointments to the Orleans County Planning Board: Paul Hendel of Holley as an at-large east member, Tibbs Ahlberg of Gaines as at-large central, Darryl Sanford of Albion as at-large central alternate, Brian Napoli of Medina as at-large west, Tom Keeler of Barre as Barre representative, Wes Miller of Barre as Barre’s alternate, Gary Daum of Lyndonville as Yates representative, and Ed Urbanik of Lyndonville as the Yates alternate.

• Authorized filling a vacant full-time deputy election commissioner position with the retirement of Dorothy Morgan in the Board of Elections.
