Village of Florida: Jayne St. bridge closed until further notice

Important letter from Mayor Daniel Harter Jr.

May 26, 2020

Attn: Florida Union Free School District

The New York State Department of Transportation has inspected the Jayne Street bridge and have deemed the structure to not meet NYS standards. The Village of Florida Board of Trustees and myself have decided to close Jayne St at Maple Avenue based upon this report effective June 15, 2020 to allow residents, the school and first responders to plan accordingly and find alternate routes. It will remain closed until further notice until necessary repairs are completed.

We understand that it is extremely inconvenient but feel it is necessary for everyone’s safety. We appreciate your patience and understanding during the closure. Thank you.

Best Regards,

Daniel Harter Jr.
Mayor
Village of Florida
