Westbound Closure on Washington Avenue Extension this weekend

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Motorists are advised that a stretch of westbound Washington Avenue Extension in the City of Albany will be closed starting Friday night and through the weekend as part of an ongoing road reconstruction project.

The closure of the 1.3-mile stretch of Washington Avenue Extension from Fuller Road to Springsteen Road is necessary as the New York State Department of Transportation continues its $7 million project to rehabilitate the pavement of this road.

The closure for only westbound traffic is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. on Friday and end by 6 a.m. on Monday.

Eastbound Washington Avenue Extension will remain open during the westbound closure.

During the closure, traffic will be detoured using Fuller Road, Western Avenue and New Karner Road (Route 155).

Motorists are further advised that a closure in the eastbound direction of Washington Avenue Extension between Springsteen Road and Fuller Road is scheduled for the weekend of Oct. 16 to 19 during similar hours.

Work is weather permitting.
