Cracked roadways on Downtown Albany's south mall expressway will have that road closed for some time as they work on repairs.

Commuters in the Albany area were already dealing with long delays as on going road work continues on the Dunn Memorial Bridge.  Now, things are going to get a bit more tricky.  The Department of transportation had to close the South Mall expressway due to cracks in the road that presented an immediate danger to motorists.  The Dunn bridge will have one lane open on both sides between the Empire State Plaza and Dunn bridge, but there are several road closures to deal with.

Closures:

  • The Madison Ave off ramp from 787 south
  • The South Pearl St on ramp from the Dunn Memorial Bridge
  • Part of Broadway between the Quay St Connector and Madison Ave

There are detours posted for everyone to follow, but the morning and afternoon commute will remain very tricky until there repairs are completed.   No details yest as to when work will begin or when it will be finished.
