Poughkeepsie… Work continues on one of Dutchess County’s largest road improvement projects this year - Myers Corners Road (CR-93) between All Angels Hill Road (CR-94) and State Route 376 in the Town of Wappinger. The project includes extensive reconstruction with new pavement, drainage, signage, and expanded shoulders to improve safety for motorists and pedestrians on one of the County’s most utilized roadways, as this section of Myers Corners Road averages approximately 8,500 vehicles every day. The 15-month project, which began in March 2019, is progressing on schedule. The next project phase, replacing a drainage culvert near Brothers Road, begins on or about Wednesday, August 14. This work will reduce a small section of Myers Corners Road, approximately 600 feet located east of DeGarmo Plaza to Immanuel Church, to one lane with an alternating traffic pattern controlled by flaggers and temporary traffic signals. Egress from Brothers Road will also be controlled by traffic signal. The culvert construction is expected to take approximately six weeks to complete. All local businesses remain open on Myers Corners Road and patrons are encouraged to utilize DeGarmo Hills Road for the easiest access to DeGarmo Plaza and other neighboring businesses.
Motorists should also be aware there will be occasional additional extended delays in the Brothers Road work area as large, pre-cast concrete culvert structures are lifted into place by crane, which will require traffic being stopped intermittently to ensure the safety of work crews and motorists. These operations will take place during mid-morning to mid-afternoon to avoid the higher volume commuting hours. If travel through the construction area cannot be avoided, motorists should plan for additional time and exercise extra caution, 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.
