Temporary Bridge Closure on State Route 156 in Town of Berne

Written By Editor on 8/30/21 | 8/30/21

The New York State Department of Transportation advised motorists today that the State Route 156 bridge over the Beaverdam Creek in the Town of Berne, Albany County, will be closed starting Tuesday, Sept. 7, to facilitate a deck replacement project.  


Motorists should follow a posted detour using Albany County Route 254 and State Route 443. All properties along State Route 156 up to the bridge closure will remain accessible for local traffic. 


The bridge is expected to reopen to passenger vehicles and school buses by mid-November. Trucks should follow the posted detour until further notice. The project is expected to be completed in the spring of 2022. 


Motorists are reminded to slow down significantly whenever encountering roadside vehicles displaying red, white, blue, amber or green lights, including maintenance and construction vehicles in work zones.  


Motorists are urged to slow down and drive responsibly in work zones. Fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. Convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver license.
