Thousands of people travel along the Irondequoit Bay Bridge every day. For months, some of the lanes have been closed while crews make repairs. News10NBC has learned those lanes are due to reopen by the end of March.

The New York Department of Transportation tells News10NBC that steel repairs are underway on the bridge. Crews say the work on those repairs began last week. Crews are also placing steel cover plates underneath four floor beams to provide additional strength.

The DOT says the bridge remains safe for travelers.
