AN ACT to amend the canal law, in relation to maintaining bridges  in  a
  manner to not impede commercial motor vehicles

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Section 62 of the canal law, as amended by chapter  335  of
the laws of 2001, is amended to read as follows:
  §  62.  Maintenance by state of certain bridges over the canal system.
All highway or pedestrian, lift or movable bridges over the canal system
other than highway bridges connecting parts of a state  highway  hereto-
fore  constructed  as  a  part  of  the barge canal improvement shall be
reconstructed, improved, maintained and repaired at the expense  of  the
state,  [if  in  the  opinion of the commissioner of transportation, the
public convenience requires such  bridges  to  be  maintained  where  no
alternate  crossing  has  been provided] IN A MANNER SO AS NOT TO IMPEDE
COMMERCIAL MOTOR VEHICLES AS DEFINED IN SUBDIVISION  FOUR-A  OF  SECTION
TWO  OF THE TRANSPORTATION LAW.  In the event the commissioner of trans-
portation determines that any such bridge is no longer required for  the
convenience of the public, he shall have power to close, remove or relo-
cate  such  bridge,  PROVIDED  AT  LEAST  ONE  PUBLIC  HEARING  SHALL BE
CONDUCTED IN THE COMMUNITY OR COMMUNITIES WHERE THE BRIDGE TO BE  CLOSED
OR  REMOVED  IS LOCATED.   The commissioner of transportation shall have
the supervision and direction of such reconstruction, improvement, main-
tenance, repair, closing, removing or relocation. All bridges  over  the
canal  system  other  than  lift,  movable,  pedestrian or state highway
bridges heretofore constructed as part of the  barge  canal  improvement
shall be reconstructed, improved, maintained and repaired at the expense
of  the state under the supervision and direction of the commissioner of
transportation, if, in his opinion, the public convenience requires that
each such bridge shall be continued as a bridge for highway traffic.  In

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
