Truck Detour Begins Monday, April 14 N. Troy/Waterford Bridge

WATERFORD - Motorists are advised that a truck detour will be in place beginning Monday, April 14, to allow for maintenance painting of the 126th Street Bridge carrying Route 4 over the Hudson River between North Troy/Lansingburgh and Waterford.

The truck detour will not apply to vehicles less than 9 feet, 6 inches wide and shorter than 12 feet in height. This includes all school buses.

Truckers can use the 112th Street Bridge, which carries Route 470 over the Hudson River, as an alternate route. The truck detour will be in place around the clock, and is expected to end on July 31.

Additionally, the bridge will be reduced to one alternating lane of traffic, controlled by flaggers, during weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., until early May.

Motorists are reminded that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. In accordance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver’s license. It is imperative that motorists remember to drive carefully through this construction zone, for their own safety and the safety of workers.
