DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- A road construction project in the Town and Village of Fishkill may result in major traffic delays for local commuters throughout the coming week.
The Dutchess County Department of Public Works has announced a half-mile stretch of Jackson Street (County Road 34), from State Route 52/Main Street to Osborne Hill Road (County Road 35), is scheduled to undergo paving.
The work is expected to begin Monday and be complete by Friday, weather permitting, officials said.
Jackson Street averages approximately 10,000 vehicles per day. The project may cause significant traffic delays, particularly during peak commute times in the morning and evening, according to officials.
Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes, plan for additional commute time and obey posted speed limits, traffic advisory signs and directions from flaggers in the work zone to ensure the safety of workers and other motorists.
Residents will continue to have access to their properties along Jackson Street throughout the paving process.
