The New York State Department of Transportation is advising motorists that the bridge carrying Route 23 over the Schoharie Creek in Prattsville, Greene County has been closed to traffic.
The bridge was closed due to cracking in a steel truss member. It is expected to be closed for several days, possibly longer. Crews will be on scene Tuesday to do a thorough structural analysis to determine what repairs are needed to safely reopen the bridge to traffic.
In the meantime, motorists are being detoured using State Routes 23, 990V and 30 and County Roads 53, 7 and 39.
