Re­paired Bridge C-31 re­opened to traf­fic

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

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.
