Please drive SLOWLY and SAFELY through construction zones.
Be patient. Pay attention to flaggers and traffic signs.
Do not drive around road striping trucks while they are painting. If you see cones covering the center lines or edge lines on the road, those lines have recently been painted and are still wet. Do not drive over them.
All of these highway and bridge projects are necessary. We are trying to complete them as quickly, and with as little impact to the traffic, as possible. We very much appreciate your patience and understanding.
Telephone our Headquarters Office, (518) 765-2055, for more details regarding any of the below projects, or for information regarding projects scheduled for construction in the future.
