Poughkeepsie…The Dutchess County Department of Public Works (DPW) has announced the replacement of Mill Lane Bridge (PV-17) in the Town of Pleasant Valley has been completed and the roadway is reopened to traffic.

Dutchess County Executive Marcus J. Molinaro said, “We are grateful to motorists and residents for their patience as our Department of Public Works team has worked to reopen this bridge. Projects like this are vital to the maintenance and improvement of our county highway system, ensuring reliability and safety for residents and visitors.”

The bridge, located at the southern end of Mill Lane, at the intersection of Mill Lane with Parksville Road and Drake Road, was closed since last year due to severe deterioration. Project work included constructing a new bridge that is slightly wider to accommodate the addition of shoulders to improve the safety of the roadway. The average daily vehicle traffic count for the bridge is approximately 140 vehicles per day.
