Poughkeepsie…The Dutchess County Department of Public Works (DPW) has announced Bridge C-31 on Hibernia Road in the Town of Clinton reopened to traffic today. Work will continue over the next several weeks to install new bridge guide rail that will result in one-lane alternating traffic patterns from approximately 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday for a limited period, but will not require additional road closures.
“Once again, our DPW Engineering Division team should be commended for their efforts to complete existing road and bridge projects on or under budget and within a timely and efficient manner. We appreciate the public’s continued patience and support as we work to improve our county highway system, making it safer and more accessible for all,” said Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro.
Bridge C-31, located east of the Taconic State Parkway between Clinton Corners Road (CR 13) and NYS Route 82 over the east branch of the Wappinger Creek, was replaced due to significant structural deficiencies. Project work began in the spring and involved the replacement of the existing bridge, abutments and approach pavement. Hibernia Road averages more than 200 vehicles per day.
