Culvert failure closes section of Rt. 9 in New Russia

NEW RUSSIA — Route 9 between Roaring Brook Lane and Simonds Hill Road in the Elizabethtown hamlet of New Russia has been closed indefinitely due to a failing culvert under the road.

The State Department of Transportation is investigating the damaged culvert and expediting a repair, a press release from that agency said. 

A reopening date has not yet been determined.

The closure is about 6 miles north of the intersection of Route 9 and Route 73 in Elizabethtown, near Exit 30 of the Adirondack Northway.

An average of 677 motor vehicles use this stretch of Route 9 daily, the release said.

A posted detour sends motorists on Route 73 to Route 9N southeast of the Keene hamlet to Route 9 in the Elizabethtown hamlet.

Access to properties and side streets up to the closure point will be maintained. A local detour may also be available.
