NYS DOT Travel Advisory: Watch for Overpass and Lane Closures at State Office Campus in Albany
Motorists are advised that the bridges carrying the W. Averell Harriman State Office Building Campus ring roads over Washington Avenue in the city of Albany will be closed starting Monday, Sept. 9, to perform maintenance repairs.

Motorists should follow detours posted on the campus ring roads. The closures are expected to be in place around the clock until the end of November. 

Additionally, one of two lanes in each direction on Washington Avenue will be closed during this work.

Motorists are urged to slow down and safely move over when approaching roadside vehicles displaying red, white, blue, amber or green lights, including maintenance and construction vehicles in work zones.
