State Street walking bridge in Binghamton coming down

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - A portion of a downtown Binghamton street is closing this month as another relic of urban renewal is torn down.

Starting Thursday morning, crews will begin demolishing the pedestrian bridge that connects City Hall and 20 Hawley Street.

As a result, State Street will be closed for about 3 weeks between Hawley and Stuart, which runs in front of the Arena.

Gorick Construction is being paid $134,000 for the demolition from the city, Broome County and New York State through their government plaza maintenance agreement.

Removal of the walkway is in advance of a major State Street Improvement Project scheduled to begin this Fall.
