PUBLIC INFORMATION SESSION FOR CAUTERSKILL ROAD BRIDGE REPLACEMENT OVER THE THRUWAY (I-87) IN GREENE COUNTY
The New York State Thruway Authority has scheduled a public information session regarding the replacement of the Cauterskill Road Bridge in the Town of Catskill, Greene County on Tuesday, April 18 from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
The Cauterskill Road Bridge was originally built in 1955 and carries Cauterskill Road (County Route 47) over the Thruway (I-87) in the Town of Catskill. This project is an example of the Authority’s reinvestment of toll dollars to improve the infrastructure for our customers, creating a safer and more enjoyable traveling experience.
The Thruway is a user-fee supported roadway and receives no federal, state, or local tax dollars.
The existing structure will be replaced with a new bridge featuring increased vertical clearance, safety guiderail, snow fencing, and a new riding surface. Approximately 870 vehicles per day travel over the Cauterskill Road Bridge.
The project is anticipated to begin in the Spring of 2024 and be completed in Fall of 2024.
The public information session will include renderings and information boards on display, and representatives from the Thruway Authority will be available to answer questions about the project and proposed detour.
