Traffic Advisory: Road Closure for Campbell Avenue Bridge Replacement Project

Traffic Advisory: Road Closure for Campbell Avenue Bridge Replacement Project

TROY, NY (September 8, 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 on Saturday, September 10th, beginning 5:00 a.m. to approximately 8:00 p.m.,

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. Pedestrian traffic will be permitted during the road closure.

In 2022, the City of Troy commenced reconstruction of the Campbell Avenue Bridge over the Wynants Kill. The project will replace this aging piece of transportation infrastructure to preserve a safe route between communities across Rensselaer County, Troy’s Eastside and South Troy neighborhoods, Hudson Valley Community College, and destinations in Albany County. Upgrades include the replacement of water and sewer infrastructure lines which travel beneath the bridge.

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. For more info, visit the Campbell Avenue Bridge Replacement project page.
