West Campbell Road to be closed
ROTTERDAM West Campbell Road between Rotterdam Square mall’s southern driveway and Burdeck Street will be closed nights beginning April 3 for construction work on the railroad bridge.
The closure will take place between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. and continue periodically for two weeks. There will be a maximum of four nighttime closures during this two-week period.
There will be a sign indicating the detour route and message boards will notify drivers before the closures.
Project manager James Killon of Creighton Manning Engineering said the closure is needed to raise the clearance of the bridge, which is often hit by tractor-trailers and large trucks passing underneath. The current clearance is 11 feet, 9 inches.
Workers will also install a barrier to protect the bridge.
