— Ormsby agreed the intersection — specifically the width of the lanes themselves on the bridge — has been a potential accident waiting to happen over the years.

“When you get one truck and another going through there, it’s tight,” said Ormsby.

As he understands it, the new bridge will also be higher over the river, said Orsmby.

“Which is good, because we’ve had ice jams [under the bridge] before. Not in quite a few years, but it has happened,” the supervisor said.

The Nov. 15 meeting will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Schuyler Falls Town Hall, 997 Mason St., in Morrisonville.
