Forestburgh, NY – Sullivan County’s Division of Public Works will conduct a Public Informational Meeting to discuss the proposed replacement of Sullivan County Bridge No. 82 which carries County Route 49 (Oakland Valley Road) over the Neversink River. This project is funded through the BridgeNY program.

The meeting will be held at the Forestburgh Town Hall, 332 King Road, Forestburgh, on Thursday October 13, 2022 from 6-8 p.m. The purpose of this meeting is to obtain comments from interested parties and adjacent landowners related to the proposed project and discuss environmental and traffic concerns.
