Lots of work on local roads

Several local roads are being worked on this week. The Register-Star's Facebook page, but not the newspaper, is reporting that the City of Hudson is milling and paving the following streets beginning Mon., Oct. 24: Graham Avenue, Fairview Avenue, Green Street, Warren Street (7th to Worth Avenue), and Michael Drive. Jim Planck in The Windham Journal reports that repairs to Kaaterskill Clove on Route 23A will be finished in November, according to the New York Department of Transportation. “Route 23A is currently open to alternating one-way traffic, controlled by a traffic signal and flaggers,” DOT Senior Public Information Officer Carol Breen told Planck. “One lane of traffic was compromised by a slope failure caused by excessive flooding in the creek that runs along the highway.” The road links Hunter, Tannersville, Palenville, and other mountain communities with the valley and leads into Catskill, and was damaged in the storms associated with Hurricane Irene. Claude Haton in The Daily Mail reports that the Route 32 bridge, over the Cauterskill Creek in Kiskatom just below the intersections of Routes 32 and 23A, should be fixed by Nov. 1. The bridge has been closed since late August, as it was damaged in the flooding associated with Hurricane Irene.
