Governor Cuomo announces a two-year $4.6 million project to rehabilitate six Capital Region bridges.
It will improve driving conditions, enhance safety and extend the service life of these bridges in in Saratoga, Warren and Albany counties.
"New York State continues to lead the way in building a 21st Century infrastructure that will promote economic growth and improve quality of life," said Governor Cuomo in a statement.
Work being done includes resurfacing of the pavement approaches to the bridges and repairs to bridge decks, joints, concrete, and guiderails. Many people are pleased with the project.
The first bridge being repaired is the Butler Road Bridge over the Adirondack Northway (Interstate 87). Traffic will be reduced to one alternating lane controlled by traffic signals during the work. Work will also begin in July on the northbound bridge and southbound bridge on the Adirondack Northway (Interstate 87). Lane closures will be required on Luzerne Road (underneath the Northway) throughout the summer with traffic controlled by a flagger. Construction on the two bridges is expected to be completed by the summer of 2020.
Other bridges being rehabed in 2020 include the Route 29 Bridge over the Fish Creek, the Route 9 Bridge over State Route 7, and the Old Loudon Road Bridge over State Route 7 in Latham.
