ROTTERDAM — Portions of Hamburg Street, also designated Route 146, will be closed to eastbound traffic around the clock starting Wednesday due to an ongoing road project.

The state Department of Transportation will close the road to eastbound motorists from Cury Road to the Chrisler Avenue bridge. Westbound passeneger vehicle traffic won’t be hindered, according to the DOT.

Trucks, however, will be detoured in both directions, except for local deliveries.

Starting Wednesday, the road will be closed between East Campbell Road and Second Street. Eastbound motorists will turn right onto East Campbell Road, and then to Highbridge Road and Interstate 890. From there, motorists can exit at Exit 6 for Michigan Avenue.

During the next stages, which are expected to begin by early November and will last until the end of the year, eastbound Hamburg Street will first be closed between Knox Drive and East Campbell Road, and then from Curry Road to Knox Drive. During those stages, eastbound motorists will be detoured using Curry Road to I-890, where they can take Exit 8 for Highbridge Road and then East Campbell Road.

To avoid construction areas, eastbound bicyclists will be detoured to Curry Road (Route 7) and Altamont Avenue and back to Hamburg Street.

All homes and businesses in the area will continue to be accessible during construction. CDTA bus service, trash pickup, local deliveries and other services in the area will continue to be provided, according to the DOT.
