I-90 Exit 2 Ramp Closure Schedule for Fuller Road Project
Avoid a traffic nightmare and plan ahead as the final phase of construction of the roundabout at Exit 2 of the corridor project moves into overdrive on Friday, May 4th. Fuller Road between Washington Avenue Extension and Railroad Avenue and the access to I-90/Exit 2 westbound will be closed for an 11-day period .
Weekend closures will mean all access will be closed and all traffic detoured . Weekday traffic changes mean that vehicles exiting from westbound I-90 at exit 2 will be allowed with one lane heading south toward Washington Avenue and another north toward Central Avenue. During the weekday traffic pattern change, Fuller Road will be closed to through traffic and I-90 westbound entrance from Fuller Road will also be closed.
Emergency and police vehicles will be allowed complete access during the entire construction phase.
The closure schedule will be as follows:
Friday, May 4th 7:00 pm to Sunday, May 6th entirely closed
Monday, May 7th 7:00 am to Friday, May 11th 7:00 pm, one lane open off the ramp allowing north and south bound traffic to flow
Friday, May 11 th 7:00 pm closed thru the weekend
Monday, May 14 th 7:00 am, it should be fully open to traffic.
Please be advised, the proposed schedule is subject to change due to weather or construction related conflicts. Thank you in advance to all motorists for your patience and cooperation.
Albany County's work on the Fuller Road Project should be entirely completed by the end of May 2012. The NYS Department of Transportation will continue its work throughout the summer on the relocation of Washington Avenue Extension and flyover.
