EXIT 23-24 CONCRETE WORK CONTINUES
THURSDAY MAY 16 & FRIDAY MAY 17
Ground vibrations will be experienced Thursday, May 16 and Friday, May 17 as the mechanical demolition of existing highway pavement continues between exits 23 and 24 in Albany.
The work is taking place just north of Exit 23 and continuing north from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The vibrations and noise are caused by the use of a power driver to break up existing pavement as part of the highway reconstruction. No explosives or blasting devices are used. The impact on specific neighborhoods bordering the work zone is temporary as the construction moves along the seven-mile-long corridor.
The Thruway Authority appreciates the patience and understanding of its neighbors and the traveling public during the temporary disruptions caused by this construction project.
The $100 million roadway widening project began in 2011 and is scheduled to be completed by the fall of 2013. For details of the project go to: http://www.thruway.ny.gov/projectsandstudies/projects/i23-i24/index.html
