Motorists are being advised that single lane closures with periodic traffic slowdowns are expected on the Taconic State Parkway.

The southbound closures will be between Rossway/Drake Road and James Baird State Park in LaGrange and Pleasant Valley on Friday, April 12, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., while crews perform construction activities, weather permitting.

Motorists should anticipate delays and seek alternate routes where possible.

Drivers are asked to use caution when traveling through the work zone area and pay particular attention to all traffic control devices, including signs and flaggers.

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.
