Route 375 reconstruction to begin

POUGHKEEPSIE – The State Department of Transportation Monday announced the award of a $6.5 million reconstruction project on Route 376 – Raymond Avenue, in the Town of Poughkeepsie.

The contract was awarded to Green Island Contracting, LLC, of Glenmont, NY.

Construction will begin the week of April 5 and expected to be completed by December.

Work will include the full reconstruction of Raymond Avenue, including improved drainage, sidewalks, lighting and landscaping. The project will also include a third roundabout that will replace the traffic signal at the Collegeview and Fulton Avenue intersection.

Collegeview Avenue will be reconfigured to provide parallel parking along both sides. The intersection of Hooker Avenue with Raymond Avenue, at the southern end of the project, will be reconfigured, eliminating the existing ramp with a designated right turn lane at the existing traffic signal.

Although there will be no detours during construction, Raymond Avenue will have at least one lane open in each direction and travelers are advised to watch for temporary lane closures, flagging personnel and occasional traffic stoppages as the work progresses.
