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.
