Boiceville Bridge

Boiceville Bridge

The Boiceville Bridge, known locally as the Five Arches Bridge, carries NY Route 28A over Esopus Creek in Boiceville, New York.


The Boiceville Bridge was built during the original construction of the Ashokan Reservoir by Harrison & Burton Company of New York City and was finished in 1913. 1 2

Work to replace the Boiceville Bridge began in November 2021 and it is expected to be finished in 2025. 1 2 The $33 million project involves building a new 384-foot-long bridge atop two new piers, the demolition of the original structure, replacing an overpass over a railroad with a 43-foot-long structure, constructing a new intersection between NY Route 28A and NY Route 28, and realigning approximately a half-mile of NY Route 28A to eliminate a severe S-curve. It also involves upgrading the Boiceville Bridge Trailhead to include an additional 10 parking spaces, adding a walking and biking path on the new bridge over Esopus Creek, and extending that path into Boiceville to provide a seamless connection between the rail trail and the community.
