Route L – Main Street Service
Beginning on Monday, May 6, 2019, Central Hudson will begin a gas main replacement along Main St. in Poughkeepsie (between South Grand and 500 ft. east of Taft on Main St.). This project is expected to take approximately 2 months.
Please expect delays and rolling closures/traffic patterns as work progresses along Main St. There will be flaggers on location to assist with the flow of traffic and redirect traffic, if necessary.
Central Hudson will provide weekly updates on the progress of the project and indicate what streets will be affected. We will only re-route the Route L bus if necessary for safety reasons and/or to best serve the public.
Your cooperation and patience will be great appreciated.
