Motorist Reminder: Route 23A Reduced to Single Lane in Greene County
Motorists are reminded that work to repair a series of slopes on the Mountain Cloves Scenic Byway section of Route 23A between Haines Falls and Palenville, in the towns of Hunter and Catskill in Greene County, is continuing as part of a $3.7 million project undertaken by the New York State Department of Transportation.
Traffic is reduced to a single alternating lane controlled by traffic signals through the stretch of Route 23A between Wingate Road in Haines Falls and the Route 23A bridge over the Kaaterskill Creek entering Palenville.
Motorists may want to consider alternate routes. If you’re heading north, consider using Route 296 to Route 23 east to Route 32. If you’re heading south, consider using Route 214 to Route 28 east toward Kingston.
Work is expected to be completed by August.
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’s license.
