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:

CLINTON COUNTY

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.

CITY OF PLATTSBURGH

FYI...
  • Why do wolves howl?

    Of all the myths that dog the wolf, none is more widely accepted than the idea that wolves howl at the moon. Images of wolves with their heads upturned, singing at the night sky, are as unquestioned as a goldfish's three-second memory or a dog's color-blindness (both also myths).
