Due to an error on my part, I needed to renumber some of the former New York bridges on the website. In the 1960's and 1970's a number of private bridges and foot bridges were assigned World Guide numbers. These were later reclassified as modern shelters and assigned letters to replace the numbers. I thought I had blocked out all those numbers before I started adding former bridges. I have discovered that was not the case and have made the necessary updates.

The bridges impacted are:
Delevan Bridge was ny-05-01, now ny-05-03
Pleasant Valley Bridge was ny-14-02, now ny-14-03
Wales Center Bridge was ny-15-01, now ny-15-05
Bullis Hill Bridge was ny-15-02, now ny-15-06
