The warm weather signals the start of road construction. So what new projects could you encounter today?

A $7.4 million project to replace the bridges at the Latham traffic circle is beginning. Weekday lane closures will start today. Some of the work will be done at night, lessening the impact on drivers and businesses.

Also, work on Interstate 90 in Rensselaer County begins today. The $4.8 million project will replace the two bridges on I-90 in the Schodack. Traffic in both directions will be reduced by one lane between exits 11 and 12. Drivers are encouraged to use Route 9 as an alternate.

There will be temporary lane closures starting tonight on Interstate 787 between exits 3B and 4 in downtown Albany.

Finally, on Friday night, work will resume through the weekends on the Twin Bridges on the Northway.
