The Fair Street bridge over the East Branch of the Delaware River in the village of Margaretville, town of Middletown, was closed as of Monday, July 9 for bridge deck joint repairs. The bridge will remain closed for approximately two weeks depending on the weather. Drivers will be redirected first to Main Street, then to NYS Route 30.

The county Route 28 bridge over the East Branch of the Delaware River at Fishs Eddy in the town of Hancock was closed for deck repairs on Monday, July 9. Work crews estimate the bridge will remain closed for two weeks. During the time of repairs, drivers will be directed to O&W Road to East Branch, then north on Bridge Street to County Route 17.

The DPW asks the traveling public to exercise extreme caution - slow down and respect road workers and other drivers and expect significant delays during work periods. Suggested reduced speed limits will be posted for the roads, as the process will create loose stones that can be thrown and cause damage at normal speeds.
