Bridge CLOSED – Lake Drive over Quassaick Creek
City of Newburgh – The Bridge that carries Lake Drive over the Quassaick Creek has been closed as of May 8, 2019 after a recent bridge inspection identified worsening structural deficiencies. Lake Drive is closed to all vehicular traffic at the northern intersection of Lake Drive and Lake Street (Route 32). Local traffic will be permitted to access the Lake Street Apartments through the south intersection of Lake Drive and Lake Street (Route 32), and also through Cerone Place. Please observe and obey all posted road closure signs and detours.
The City of Newburgh is in the process of replacing this structurally deficient bridge originally constructed in the 1970’s. Construction on the new replacement bridge is anticipated to start in the fall of 2019 and extend through 2020.
