Jarvis Road is Open for Traffic

Completed Jarvis Rd. Bridge

By John T. Ryan

Peru – Construction of a new Jarvis Road Bridge began on June 12th. Today, following an inspection by Clinton County Highway Superintendent Al Rascoe, the bridge was opened for traffic. A John Deer tractor driven by Tyler Irwin was the first vehicle to cross the bridge.

New Century Construction of Watervliet was the general contractor on the $765,000 project that was completed far ahead of the October 31st deadline. Al Rascoe said, “We’ve had good experiences working with New Century.”

Tyler Irwin was the first “civilian” to drive across the bridge.

The bridge replaced an approximately 60 year old structure. The new bridge is expected to last approximately 75 years. It’s being paid for by county, state and federal funding.

The Jarvis  Road bridge is very important to Peru’s dairy farmers and orchardists, as well as, people traveling from Clintonville, Au Sable Forks and other communities to  Morrisonville, Plattsburgh and Dannemora.
