Rt. 85 work expected to finish soon
With the drainage issues fixed, the new sidewalk installed and paving now complete, construction work on State Route 85 in Slingerlands is completed. New Scotland Road was fully re-opened on Friday, Sept. 8 to traffic in both directions. Use caution, as the bridge for the rail trail will take a while longer and pedestrians and walkers will be crossing the road.
The pedestrian and bicycle detour and crossing for the Rail Trail will remain in place until a replacement bridge can be installed. For the complete Country Report visit the full report on the County’s website.
