DOT: Work to start on Crossgates flyover ramp

GUILDERLAND - The Department of Transportation has announced a 2.5 million dollar project to replace a well-known ramp at the end of I-87

Starting Monday, March 25th, construction will begin to replace Crossgates Mall Flyover Bridge Deck.  The ramp will remain open in limited capacity with a narrow lane, and a 10 ten ton weight limit.  Detours will guide vehicles to Western Avenue and then to the southern end of the Northway.

DOT also is planning six to 12 overnight total closures of the flyover ramp to complete the project. These closures will occur between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. to minimize traffic impacts. All ramp closures will be announced in advance, with the appropriate coordination with emergency services.

Work on the ramp is scheduled to be completed at the end of September.
