Road Construction Roundup: Sept. 3, 2013

PLATTSBURGH — The 2013 road-construction season is continuing.

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 major projects around Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties:


Narrows Road, Ellenburg: Crews are rehabilitating the Narrows Road Bridge. During construction, the road will be closed, and a detour will be in place. Work is expected to be completed by mid-November.

Clinton Mills Road, Mooers: Crews are paving Clinton Mills Road between Canaan Road and Route 189. Motorists should expect some delays.

Frontier Road, Churubusco: Crews are paving between Route 189 and Lost Nation Road. Motorists should expect minor delays.

Interstate 87, Plattsburgh: The northbound and southbound lanes have been reduced to one lane from Route 3 to exit 39. The work-zone speed is 45 mph. A signed detour is in place 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.


Route 9, Chesterfield: Traffic has been reduced to one lane in alternating directions at the Chesterfield/Lewis line and is controlled by a temporary signal.

Adirondack Loj Road, North Elba: Motorists should use the temporary bridge while crews perform a replacement project.

Mountain View Drive, Reber: Crews are performing a bridge-reconstruction project. The project is expected to take several months to complete.

Interstate 87, Town of Chesterfield: Northbound traffic has been reduced to one lane from exit 32 to the AuSable/Chesterfield line. Motorists should expect lane closures in both the northbound and southbound lanes between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Work is expected to be complete in late November.

    Will teenagers ever learn? You think yours will. Maybe so. But it's likely that was also the hope of the parents of children who were so shamed by nude photos of themselves that went south - how else can they go - that they killed themselves.
