Poughkeepsie…The Dutchess County Department of Public Works (DPW) has announced work will begin at the end of April to replace deteriorated guiderail on County Bridge E-9 on Palen Road (CR 31) in the Town of East Fishkill. Work on the bridge, located approximately three tenths of a mile south of the intersection with NY State Route 82, will close Palen Road to through traffic at the bridge while the project is underway.
