Freemans Bridge construction to shift Monday

Traffic will remain one lane in each direction, but shift to new lanes

GLENVILLE & SCHENECTADY — The traffic pattern during construction on Freeman’s Bridge over the Mohawk River will shift on Monday, the state Department of Transportation said.

The four-lane bridge has had the two outer lanes in each direction open while work took place on the center lanes of the bridge. Starting Monday, work will shift to the outer lanes, and traffic will be using the two inner lanes.

DOT spokesman Bryan Viggiani said the work will still prohibit drivers making a left turn from the bridge onto Maxon Road Extension, or a right turn from Maxon Road Extension onto the bridge. The recommended detour for those turns is to use the Erie Boulevard roundabout at Nott Street.

The $3 million rehabilitation project started in March and is expected to be completed before the end of the year.
