RED HOOK, N.Y. -- Dutchess County officials took to Twitter Friday to report that the Linden Avenue Bridge has reopened to traffic.
The bridge, which runs over the Saw Kill, was closed April 11 to make way for a new bridge and the installation of several new safety improvements, including new bridge railing, guide rails, signage and drainage.
According to the county's Tweet on Friday, the bridge project was completed and the road opened about five weeks ahead of schedule.
The project was also said to have come in on budget, according to the county.
