New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced the commencement of construction of a $47.6m bridge deck replacement and rehabilitation project on the Castleton-On-Hudson Bridge.

The Castleton-On-Hudson Bridge, on the New York State Thruway (I-90) Berkshire Spur, is claimed to be a main connector between Albany and Rensselaer counties and serves about 6.2 million vehicles a year.

Work on the project involves asphalt overlay to eastbound travel lanes, complete deck replacement of the westbound travel lanes and deck repairs, bridge steel repairs as well as other safety enhancements.

It will also include additional safety enhancements such as new guiderail, miscellaneous steel repairs, new pavement at each end of the bridge and new beacon lights on the bridge.

The bridge deck replacement and rehabilitation project is being executed by L&T Construction of Richmondville, New York.

Construction work on the project will be completed in phases, where the first phase will involve deck repairs and asphalt overlay to the eastbound lanes while the second phase will include complete deck replacement to the westbound travel lanes.

During each construction phase, traffic will be shifted and reduced to one travel lane in each direction.
Work on the project is planned to be completed by the end of next year.

Governor Cuomo said: “As part of our efforts to build back better, we are continuing to pursue an aggressive infrastructure program that makes the investments necessary for strengthening roads and bridges across New York.

“The upgrades being made to the Castleton-On-Hudson Bridge will not only ensure this structure continues to be safe and reliable for motorists well into the future, but also support the continued flow of goods throughout the Capital Region.”
