A short section of Route 42 in the town of Lexington is scheduled to be closed on Tuesday while a private bridge is installed, according to the New York State Department of Transportation (DOT).
Route 42 will be closed from Spruceton Road to Beech Ridge Road, from 6 am to 6 pm, on Tuesday, August 26.
The installation of the private bridge will be done by a 275-ton crane. The work is not being done by the DOT.
During the closure, truck traffic will be detoured. Instead of using Route 42, trucks can take Route 23A to Route 214 to Route 28. Cars and emergency vehicles can use Beech Ridge Road as a local detour around the closed area.
If rain delays the work, the closure will be scheduled for Wednesday, August 27.
