Road Construction Roundup: Oct. 2, 2012

Road construction is under way throughout Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties.

Crews ask that motorists use caution when driving through work zones. Fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone.

Here is a look at some of the major work occurring this week:


Korean Veterans Memorial Bridge, Rouses Point: Crews replaced the bridge deck membrane and bridge joints. Traffic is reduced to one lane and controlled by a traffic light as paving is completed. The project is expected to take until Nov. 30.
