Albany Area Spring Road Construction – Twin Bridges, Latham Circle Delays

Twin Bridges on I-87

Now that the warm weather has arrived, Spring construction has begun in the Albany, New York area.

Two of the biggest concerns are the Twin Bridges on I-87 (over the Mohawk River between exits 7 and 8) and the Latham Traffic Circle on Route 9.

According to the Department of Transportation, Governor Cuomo’s “Driver’s First Initiative” will keep traffic disruptions to a minimum as two lanes south and one lane north will be open during weekend construction on the Twin Bridges. Weekend work over the Mohawk River is expected to begin on Friday nights at 10pm, starting Friday Night, April 5, 2013 and ending before Memorial Day Weekend.

Meanwhile, in Latham they are replacing the bridges at the Latham Traffic Circle. You can expect weekday lane closures starting on April 1, 2013. The bridges at the circle carry Troy Schenectady Road (Route 2) over New Loudon Road (Route 9) in the Albany County town of Colonie.

According to DOT, they have planned the two projects around each other. “Because this project will coincide with the major weekend construction work on the Twin Bridges, NYSDOT will limit lane closures on Route 9 and Route 2 to weekdays until the Twin Bridges work is completed. Lane closures on Route 2 will occur only during off-peak hours.”

For up-to-date travel information, call 511 or visit GNA will also provide live traffic updates every weekday morning and afternoon on your workday commutes.
