County officials said the bridge project was ahead of schedule and under budget. Crane-Hogan Structural Systems in Spencerport was the main contractor for $793,729. The new bridge replaces one from 1959. The project is part of an $8 million bond the county took out in 2014 for a series of infrastructure projects over three years.

Contractors are also close to finishing a bridge over Fish Creek on East Scott Road in Ridgeway. Union Concrete and Construction Corporation in West Seneca submitted the low bid for that project at $724,346. The new bridge will replace one from 1936.
