FAIRPORT, N.Y. (WHEC) — The lift bridge in Fairport will not reopen on Nov. 8 as originally planned. 

In a statement from NYSDOT Region 4 Director Kevin Bush, the Department of Transportation says that the "Route 250 (Main Street) Lift Bridge was initially expected to re-open to traffic this November, but is facing construction delays due to supply chain issues. We now expect the bridge will re-open to traffic as early as February 2021. We will continue to communicate with the Village on our progress and will provide any further schedule updates to the community as needed."
