Washington Avenue Extension Westbound Closed this Weekend in Albany

Watch for Westbound Closure on Washington Avenue Extension This Weekend

Motorists are advised that a stretch of westbound Washington Avenue Extension in the City of Albany will be closed starting Friday night and through the weekend as part of an ongoing road reconstruction project.

The closure of the 1.3-mile stretch of Washington Avenue Extension from Fuller Road to Springsteen Road is necessary as the New York State Department of Transportation continues its $7 million project to rehabilitate the pavement of this road.

The closure for only westbound traffic is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. on Friday and end by 6 a.m. on Monday.

Eastbound Washington Avenue Extension will remain open during the westbound closure.

During the closure, traffic will be detoured using Fuller Road, Western Avenue and New Karner Road (Route 155).

Motorists are further advised that a closure in the eastbound direction of Washington Avenue Extension between Springsteen Road and Fuller Road is scheduled for the weekend of Oct. 16 to 19 during similar hours.

Work is weather permitting.

It is imperative that motorists remember to drive carefully in the vicinity of this construction zone, for their own safety and the safety of workers.

Motorists are reminded that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. In accordance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver’s license.
