4/14/2021 PROJECT UPDATE: 
PLEASE BE ADVISED: The contractor will start on Phase 2A of the project this Friday (April 15) at 8 PM. This phase will prohibit left turns from southbound Route 4 to the westbound I-90 onramp.  Traffic ordinarily making this turn will be detoured southbound on Route 4 to the Route 151 (Couse Corners) roundabout, to northbound Route 4, to a right turn onto the onramp. 
(All work on Route 4 near the Route 4/Route 151 roundabout will be completed prior to the start of Phase 2A.) 
This phase is expected to continue for seven (7) days, when Phase 2B will be activated. 

Phase 2B will include a full closure of BOTH the onramp TO westbound I-90 from Route 4 AND the offramp FROM westbound I-90 to Route 4, and is expected to extend from 9 PM Friday April 22 until 6 AM Monday April 25.

NYSDOT will resume work on Monday, March 28.  The first phase of this year's construction, Route 4 near I-90 will be reduced to one lane in each direction for approximately  three (3) weeks. There will also be a work zone setup with pavement width reductions along southbound Route 4 at Hampton Inn Drive and near the Dunkin' Donuts at 97 Troy Road.  Other traffic control strategies will be needed later this spring and we will continue to provide updates as soon as we receive them from NYS DOT.  The current expectation is that the entire effort will be competed by June 30.

  • Couse Corners Roundabout 

NYSDOT will resume work beginning the week of April 11th on Couse Corners Roundabout.  The contractor will be milling the Route 4 entrances and exits to the roundabout.  The next step will be to start the top course paving Route 4 Southbound from Hampton Inn Drive and proceed south.  Then the Route 4 Northbound lanes exiting the roundabout   Permanent Striping will occur upon completion of the paving.  NYSDOT anticipates that they will have this work complete by the end of the week, weather permitting.

Please be advised that this work is weather dependent - we will advise of any changes in the schedule.

  • Route 9J - into Castleton

NYSDOT's contractor has begun sidewalk improvements along Route 9J in the Village of Castleton.  We expect that this work will continue weekdays until Friday, April 15, subject to weather conditions.

Starting tomorrow (Tuesday, April 12), the contractor is scheduled to begin milling and paving operations along Route 9J from the Rensselaer/East Greenbush line to the Columbia County line.  This work will progress from one end of the corridor to the other, first with milling and then with paving and shoulder backup work, and is currently expected (barring schedule disruptions due to weather) to take until Friday, May 13 to complete.  The contractor will return to the area in mid-July for about two days of audible roadway delineator (rumble strip) installation work.

During the milling and paving work there will be alternating one-way traffic in the work areas, controlled by flagpersons.  All properties will continue to be accessible to residents, business patrons, delivery vehicles and emergency responders throughout construction.
