Updated 8/6: The work has been postponed to next week (Aug 11-13)
The New York State Department of Transportation is advising motorists that a half-mile segment of Route 73 in the town of Keene, Essex County, between Route 9N and the southern end of Hulls Falls Road (County Route 13A) will be closed between Tuesday and Thursday as part of a project to replace a culvert underneath the road.
During the three-day closure, motorists heading northbound wishing to reach Keene will be detoured to Route 9 north to Elizabethtown. Motorists should then take Route 9N to reach Route 73 in Keene. Motorists coming southbound from Keene will be detoured on Route 9N toward Elizabethtown and then to Route 9 south to reach Route 73.
Preliminary work is scheduled to begin Monday, Aug. 3, and the entire project is expected to be completed by Aug. 14. Apart from the three-day full closure, motorists should watch for periodic lane and shoulder closures with flaggers on this stretch of Route 73.
