Work on Route 20 Bridges in Town of Nassau Begins April 1

Motorists are advised that work will begin Friday, April 1, on two bridges carrying Route 20 over the Kinderhook Creek in the Town of Nassau, Rensselaer County.  Construction to replace the two bridges — one at the East Nassau village line, the other approximately one mile west near the intersection of Route 66 — will occur simultaneously. During the work, traffic will be reduced to a single alternating lane controlled by traffic signals at each location. Work will occur during the day and is scheduled to be completed by Nov. 30.  The speed limit will be reduced to 40 mph through the work zone area. Trucks are prohibited from detouring onto local roads to avoid the work zone, particularly Blis Schoolhouse Road. Trucks with oversized loads are prohibited from using this stretch of Route 20 and local roads.  A third bridge on Route 20 over the Kinderhook Creek, located in between these two bridges, was replaced last year.  The bridge replacements are part of a $7.8 million project with Bette & Cring of Latham, Albany County. Support for the replacement of the bridge comes from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Scour-Critical/Flood Prone bridge program, which is funded through the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMPG) authorized by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).  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.
