CLIFTON PARK --The state Department of Transportation has announced weekend road closures on the Route 146 roundabout project in town.

Motorists are advised that segments of the intersection of Route 146, Route 146A and Vischer Ferry Road in Clifton Park,  will be closed during the next three weekends as work continues to construct a modern, two-lane roundabout.

The northern leg of the intersection — leading to and from Route 146A — will close at 10 p.m. on Friday and is scheduled to reopen by Saturday at 11 p.m. Route 146A motorists can use the posted detour via Kinns Road, Plank Road and Maxwell Drive to reach Route 146.

Traffic traveling on Route 146, and from Vischer Ferry Road onto Route 146, will be reduced to a single alternating lane controlled by flaggers around the clock.

The following weekend, the southern leg of the intersection — leading to and from Vischer Ferry Road — will close at 10 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 27, and reopen by Saturday, Sept. 28, at 11 p.m. Vischer Ferry Road motorists can use the posted detour via Clifton Park Center Road and Moe Road to reach Route 146.

Traffic traveling on Route 146 will be reduced to a single alternating lane controlled by flaggers around the clock.

During the final weekend of construction, both the northern and southern legs of the intersection will close at 10 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 4, and reopen by 11 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5. Motorists should use the posted detours as noted above.

Traffic traveling on Route 146 will once again be reduced to a single alternating lane controlled by flaggers around the clock.

Work and the scheduled closures will occur as weather permits and motorists are advised to plan travels accordingly. 

Motorists are urged to slow down and safely move over when approaching roadside vehicles displaying red, white, blue, amber or green lights, including maintenance and construction vehicles in work zones. 

Fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone.
