RENSSELAER, N.Y. (NEWS10) — On Tuesday, Rensselaer County officials visited the site on Taborton Road on County Route 42, where reconstruction continues following a major storm in July. The storm caused a three-story hole in the road and damaged nearby Oak Hill Road.
Work to repair the damage has been extensive and plagued by rain delays. Officials said that a nearby stream was diverted and culverts reengineered. A temporary bridge is open to local traffic.
“We thank residents and motorists for their patience as this important project continues,” said County Executive, Steve McLaughlin and Director of Central Services, Jim Gordon in a prepared statement.
