There is a ramp closure scheduled on the Taconic State Parkway in the Hudson Valley as crews prepare to perform maintenance activities on the roadway in East Fishkill.
The New York State Department of Transportation issued an alert cautioning that there will be a ramp closure on the parkway northbound at exit 43A (northbound Route 82) between 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 18, to allow contractors to continue work in the area.
During the project, there will be a posted detour, and motorists have been advised to seek alternate routes, when possible.
According to the NYSDOT, “motorists are reminded that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. In accordance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver license.”
