GLENVILLE — A summer-long project to repair state Route 147 after the harsh winter is starting this week, the state Department of Transportation has announced.
The state will be spending $2.4 million to clean drainage areas and then repave a 6.6 mile stretch of the state highway -- also called Sacandaga Road -- from Ridge Road in West Glenville to the Saratoga County line near Charlton Road. Work will also include guardrail work and center line delineators.
DOT said work will take place during daylight hours, and could limit the road to alternating one-way traffic at times. Cleaning of drainage ditches will start next week, with paving expected to begin in July. The total project is expected to take about eight weeks.
The project is one of a number around the state specifically designed to address winter damage.
Another project, a $2.3 million resurfacing of state Route 29 from the Fulton County line to Benzal Road in Saratoga County, has yet to start.
