Bridge Replacement Work on Broadway in Tivoli to Begin Next Month
Poughkeepsie…The Dutchess County Department of Public Works (DPW) has announced work is expected to begin the week of May 8th to replace Bridge RH-25 on Broadway (CR 78) in the Village of Tivoli. The bridge, located over the Stony Creek, was originally built in 1929 and is in need of replacement due to structural deficiencies. Project work includes the replacement of the existing bridge and abutments, the creation of a 5-foot sidewalk on the north side of the bridge, widened travel lanes and shoulders, and the installation of new stone parapet with lighting that will incorporate key stones of local significance from the existing wall. Work is expected to continue through the summer, with the new bridge opening by early fall.
Broadway will remain closed for the duration of the project and a detour route will be posted. There will be no pedestrian access across the creek during construction. View a project detour map.
Motorists are advised to plan for additional time and to exercise extra caution on the detour route, obey the posted speed limits, traffic advisory signs, and the directions from flaggers in the work zone to ensure the safety of workers and other motorists. Bridge RH-25 averages approximately 2,200 vehicles per day.
