Road Construction Roundup: June 20, 2013

PLATTSBURGH — The 2013 road-construction season has begun.

Crews ask that motorists use caution when driving through work zones, where fines are doubled for speeding.

Here’s a look at some of the projects around Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties:


Route 190, Ellenburg: Crews are working on the connector between routes 190 and 11. Traffic is controlled by flaggers.

Narrows Road, Ellenburg: Crews will begin rehabilitation of the Narrows Road Bridge on June 24. During that time, the road will be closed and a detour will be in place. Work is expected to be completed in November.

Lake Shore Road, Chazy: Crews will begin rehabilitation of the bridge over the Little Chazy River immediately south of Lapointe Road on June 24. During that time, the road will be closed and a detour will be in place.

Route 9, Beekmantown: Crews are performing shoulder-cutting operations on alternating sides of the road, moving along Route 9 between Route 11 and Spellman Road in Beekmantown. Traffic is reduced to one lane in both directions where work is taking place.

Interstate 87, Plattsburgh: The northbound and southbound lanes have been reduced to one lane from Route 3 to Exit 39. Work-zone speed is 45 mph. There is a signed detour for motorists trying to use the Exit 38 northbound on-ramp, which is closed. There are lane restrictions of 16 feet in the southbound lane and 18 feet in the northbound lane. One-lane traffic will remain until early October.

Route 22, Plattsburgh: Crews are reconstructing the overpass over Interstate 87. There are some daily lane closures. Traffic is controlled by flaggers.

Guideboard Road, Town of Black Brook: The road is closed due to a drainage-structure failure. Crews are working to reopen the road by July 4. Motorists should follow the signed detour.


Boynton Avenue: Crews are reconstructing the road between Lynde Street and Woodland Avenue. Traffic is controlled by flaggers.

  • Stepping forward: The real Colbert

    Letterman changed the late-night TV game between his run on NBC's "Late Night" and starting the "Late Show" franchise in 1993. And while it's tough to replace a pop-culture icon, Colbert, in terms of pedigree and sense of humor, makes the most sense.
