City Issues Traffic Advisory for Campbell Avenue Bridge Replacement Project

TROY, NY (June 1, 2022) – City officials have issued a traffic advisory for road closures on Campbell Avenue associated with the Campbell Avenue Bridge Replacement project. Campbell Avenue between Colleen Road and Project Road will be closed to all vehicle traffic beginning 6:00 p.m., Friday, June 3rd through 1:00 p.m., Sunday, June 5th.

Traffic delays are expected. Westbound traffic will be detoured to Spring Avenue through South Troy. Eastbound traffic will be detoured to Vandenburgh Avenue to Winter Street Extension. Motorists are asked to reduce speeds and utilize the posted detour route. Local emergency services have been notified of traffic restrictions. Businesses and homes on Campbell Avenue will remain open and accessible during the closure. The bridge will be closed to pedestrian traffic during the road closure.

Replacement of the Campbell Avenue Bridge is 95% funded through the state’s BRIDGE-NY Program, and is administered by New York State Department of Transportation.

Mayor Patrick Madden said, “I am pleased to see the Campbell Avenue Bridge Replacement Project officially begin, one of countless improvement efforts underway in Troy this year. We are leveraging state resources to improve the condition of local infrastructure and enhance the quality of life for Troy residents and families, and I applaud Governor Hochul, Assemblymember John McDonald, and Senator Neil Breslin for their ongoing commitment to directly support local communities.”

Deputy Mayor Chris Nolin said, “The start of upgrades to the Campbell Avenue Bridge – a vital link that connects residents, families, local businesses, visitors, and emergency response personnel to locations in Troy and the Capital Region – is the latest in this administration’s efforts to build a stronger foundation for the City’s future growth and development. The investment from New York State in replacing the Campbell Avenue Bridge was critical to make this project a reality, and we appreciate the continued support of Governor Hochul and our state representatives for their allocation of tax dollars to rebuild vital transportation infrastructure in Troy.”
