GLENVILLE -- Maple Avenue in the vicinity of Ronald Reagan Way will be reduced to alternating one-way traffic starting Tuesday and ending on Sept. 15, while Schenectady County completes part of the new road alignment at that intersection.
The restrictions will run from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., weather permitting, county officials said.
The county Department of Engineering and Public Works said long delays are expected, and drivers should seek alternate routes. The road is normally used by about 12,500 motorists per day, making it one of Glenville's busiest roads.
The county is realigning the 2,000-foot road section to eliminate a pair of awkward and dangerous curves at the top and bottom of a short hill. The road is being shifted to the east to take a more direct route down the hill. The work, being done by county crews, is expected to cost about $1.1 million.
Intermittent lane closures are expected between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. until the entire project is complete, which should happen in coming weeks.
