Repaired Bridge C-31 reopened to traffic
Bridge C-31 on Hibernia Road in the town reopened to traffic Friday, according to the Dutchess County Department of Public Works.
While the bridge has reopened, work will continue over the next several weeks to install new guide rails that will result in one-lane alternating traffic patterns from approximately 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, for a limited period. It will not require additional road closures.
Bridge C-31, located east of the Taconic State Parkway between Clinton Corners Road and state Route 82 over the east branch of the Wappinger Creek, was replaced due to significant structural deficiencies.
Project work began in the spring and involved the replacement of the existing bridge, abutments and approach pavement. Hibernia Road averages more than 200 vehicles per day.
