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.


Countywide road construction: Crews are sweeping and performing general maintenance throughout the county. Traffic will be controlled by flaggers as necessary.

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

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.
