Road construction projects coming to Brant

BRANT — Town of Brant residents will have to deal with two major bridge closures, later this year. The reconstruction projects, scheduled to take place on bridges located on Four Mile Level Road (Route 438) and Mile Strip Road, are expected to last for two years.

The first closure will be the bridge on Four Mile Level Road (Route 438), with construction scheduled to begin this fall, on Sept. 1. The official closure will take place on Sept. 15, with a reopening date tentatively set for March 6, 2015.

According to the New York State Thruway Authority, which will be heading up the reconstruction projects, the scope of work to be done on the Four Mile Level Road (Route 438) includes installing a temporary detour, installing a temporary barrier on that roadway and then closing the existing bridge, before completely removing the existing bridge.

A pile foundation and proposed guardrail will be installed, the bridge will be constructed and roadway striping will take place. Along the way, the existing profile of Four Mile Level Road will be adjusted, as necessary.

The bridge on Mile Strip Road is scheduled to close on March 16, 2015, with construction to begin shortly thereafter. Mile Strip Road will open to traffic again on Nov. 9, 2015, with the construction project scheduled to shut down for the winter season, on Nov. 24, 2015. The project, which will resume on March 14, 2016, is scheduled to be completed on April 29, 2016.

The scope of construction work is similar to that of the Four Mile Level Road bridge, the NYSTA said. It involves installing a temporary detour and placing a temporary barrier on Mile Strip Road. The existing bridge will then be closed, and then completely removed. A pile foundation will then be installed, the bridge will be constructed and retaining walls will be placed. A proposed guardrail and roadway striping are the last steps in that proposed project.
