Poughkeepsie…The Dutchess County Department of Public Works (DPW) has announced the replacement of the bridge on Willow Vale Road over the Shekomeko Creek in the Town of Pine Plains has been completed, ahead of schedule and within budget and the road has reopened to thru traffic. Project work was originally slated for completion by Fall 2021.
The project work, which began in March, involved replacing the structure with a one-lane bridge on an improved alignment to help increase visibility for motorists and reduce speed on the roadway. During construction, motorists were detoured along County Route 83 and Hammertown Road/Righters Corners Road (CR-70).
Willow Vale Road averages approximately 88 vehicles per day.
