The project is designed to improve traffic safety and sight distance with a redesigned intersection. Occasional traffic delays should be anticipated during the project, which is expected to be complete by mid- to late-August.

 “This project is among the $25 million we are investing in various bridge and highway projects this year, improving the safety and reliability for all those who travel our County roads every day," Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro said. " We will continue maintaining and improving our infrastructure to ensure residents and visitors have a safe commute and we support the needs of our communities today and into the future.”

The project involves building a conventional four-way intersection with four-foot shoulders, replacing the existing island. 

Once complete, the new intersection will give right-of-way to motorists on Bruzgul Road/Wingdale Mountain Road with Clove Valley Road/Clove Road controlled by stop signs.

The intersection will remain open during construction with occasional lane closures that will cause traffic delays and interruptions. 

The total project cost is estimated at $276,020. The intersection averages approximately 6,160 vehicles per day.
