TROY, NY – The City of Troy's Department of Public Utilities (DPU) announced today that work involving nearby water infrastructure will result in River Street being closed from Glen Ave to Douw Street from 7AM to 3:30 PM for the next five business days.
Northbound traffic will be detoured onto Douw Street, then to 6th Avenue. Southbound traffic will be detoured onto Glen Avenue, then to 6th Avenue.
"While road closures can be inconvenient for residents, they help keep our workforce safe so they can focus on the vital work we all depend on," said Troy Department of Public Utilities Superintendent Chris Wheland. "Motorists are advised to anticipate detours and should seek alternative routes when making travel plans."
The City of Troy is posting solar-powered signage to advise the community and motorists of the road closure. CDTA, the Troy Housing Authority and National Grid have also been notified of the closure.
