DOT plans I-395 lane closure to complete bridge upgrades

For 10 days starting Friday evening, the state Department of Transportation will close the southbound lane of Interstate 395 in Waterford to complete a $6 million bridge rehabilitation where the highway crosses Route 85. The project replaces the bridge deck and parapet, and installs a precast concrete median barrier that will be safer than the current railing, project engineer Andrew Millovitsch said. DOT has planned the project since 2017, when routine inspections of the 1957 bridge revealed the deck needed replacing. Mohawk Northeast will blast clean and paint the steel, protecting it from the elements and extending its longevity.
