Meanwhile, the Broome County Department of Public Works is currently in the design phase of a project to replace the Old Route 17 bridge and Chestnut Street culvert over Hotchkiss Creek in the Village of Windsor.

The double-barrel concrete box bridge was built in 1950 and is set on soil without concrete pilings.  The deck and other parts of the structure are said to be in poor condition according to a listing of DPW engineering projects in need of attention at the Broome County government website.
