ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Beginning on Monday, May 2 at 6 a.m., Southern Boulevard from McAlpin Street to Delaware Avenue will be closed. Local and emergency vehicles will still be able to access the road.

The road closure is expected to be in place through the end of June. Officials said the road will be closed Monday through Friday but will be open on weekends. 

The Albany Water Department will be completing work in that area. Officials said drivers who typically travel in this area should expect delays and are urged to seek alternate routes. 

A signed detour will be in place during the project to safely direct drivers around the closure. Drivers are asked to reduce speeds, follow posted traffic detours, watch for flaggers, and use caution in the work zone.
