Get Ready For Some Albany Area Bridge Construction

If you take the Patroon Island Bridge, Congress Street Bridge or Thaddeus Kosciuszko (Twin Bridges) to go to work, get ready for some delays. New York State will soon begin some much-needed renovations on these bridges, as well as a few others.

According to a story from the Times Union, the projects will begin sometime this year. In the Albany area, the plan is to fix more than 250 miles of roads and about 17 bridges that in need of repair. These projects may also be creating about 20,000 jobs all over New York State.

There is quite a list of places where to watch out for construction. Some of the local counties which will be affected by the construction will be Albany, Schenectady, Rensselaer, Greene, Columbia and Warren Counties.

Part of the projects for the Congress Street, Western Gateway and Twin Bridges will have the decks replaced on them. It’s a little inconvenient for a lot of people, but in the long run, it’s nice to know that the outcome when all the work is done, means much safer roads and bridges to travel on. I like to consider this to be a “better safe than sorry” situation.
