ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A more than $8 million bridge rehabilitation project has been concluded in Islip on Long Island.

The office of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday announced the conclusion of the work on the bridge carrying the Southern and Heckscher state parkways over State Route 27.

The project included the total replacement of the bridge deck and aging structural supports as well. The bridge was also raised by half a foot to allow taller vehicles to travel below the bridge.

The bridge stayed open during the project.

The original span was built in 1960. It carries more than 100,000 motorists daily.
