A portion of the Northway near the Sitterly Road Overpass will be closed down this weekend, after a truck with a boom lift struck the overpass last week.

Starting Saturday night, all lanes of the Northway southbound will shut down between Exits 9 and 8A in Clifton Park.

It is happening from 8 p.m. Saturday until noon Sunday. This is so the Department of Transportation can repair the Sitterly Road overpass. They will be removing a segment of that bridge following last week’s crash.

During the closure this weekend, traffic will be detoured at Exit 9.
