Crews are working now to get the bus unstuck and are taking a look at the water main break. Officials have closed the intersection at 4th and Federal.  The road closures impact the following:

  • 4th Street (Northbound) between Fulton and Federal streets
  • 3rd Street (Southbound) between Federal and Fulton streets
  • Grand Street between 5th Avenue and 4th Street
  • Southbound River Street traffic is temporarily able to take a left turn from River Street onto Federal Street due to the closure

Rensselaer mayor Michael Stammel has issued an advisory requiring all residents and businesses to conserve water. The water main break is preventing the city storage tank from filling.
