Roads and Bridges Still Closed From Tropical Storm Irene – More Photos

Although the clean-up has begun and many areas are seeing their power restored, some areas of the Capital Region are still affected by the aftermath of Tropical Storm Irene.  The following roads and bridges are still closed, as of 9:45am on Tuesday, August 30, 2011.

WRGB published this list of current road closures.

The New York State Thruway is still closed eastbound between Exits 25A and 34A.  The Thruway is also closed westbound between Exits 25A and 30.  Motorists are advised to use I-88 as an alternate route.

Drivers should expect long delays on Route 146.

Route 5 in Albany County has several trouble spots; the exit 2 ramp is closed in both directions affecting motorists heading into Schenectady.

Glenville: Freeman’s Bridge is still closed. However, the Rexford Bridge and Western Gateway Bridge in Scotia are both open.

Watervliet: Motorists should avoid I-787 northbound around Exit 8. That section of roadway is closed due to flooding.

Rotterdam: Police are reporting that West Campbell Road is closed for traffic from I-890 to Putnam Road.  Also, both lanes of Route 5S is closed from Parkis Street to the Montgomery County line.  Route 5S is open from I-890 to the Rotterdam Junction Fire House.

Waterford: Both bridges leading into Waterford are open.  However, a State of Emergency is still in place in the Town and Village.  No vehicles are allowed from Broad Street to the River.
