The signs are in place, many are still covered up. Detour signs that will send trucks that are Northbound on Route 9G from Germantown, over a long detour before they can cross the Rip Van Winkle Bridge.
We're thinking the work zone area will not be wide enough for trucks to pass, unless they take the detour route.
The Detour follows 9G North into the city of Hudson, and follows the truck route, Over 3rd Street, Up Columbia to Park Place and over to Warren. Then up Warren and out Route 9 to 23, where they will be headed Westbound and be able to cross the bridge.
The Construction is expected to ramp up this week.A few times this weekend, I've passed one of those detour signs, all covered up, on Warren Street east of Park Place, and wondered about it. Now I know.
Gossips Update: There are actually three detour signs on Warren Street between Park Place and Worth Avenue, all waiting to be unveiled on Monday morning. The first is in front of Rivertown Lodge, the second by Wasabi, and the third near the intersection with Worth Avenue. On the way to the cemetery for my evening walk with Joey, I snapped pictures of two of them.
Turning the corner at the top of Warren Street, I noticed there were similar signs on Worth Avenue.
