Peekskill Road Closed

Road closed as new guard railings are installed

By Michael Mell

The warning signs were there, literally. Orange, diamond-shaped signs saying the road would be closed to through traffic on July 11. Detours were posted on Routes 9, 301, and 9D. On the designated day, large barricades appeared on either end of Peekskill Road and the much used short cut was closed off.      

New guardrails prepped for installation

The reason? New steel guardrails are being installed on the bridge at Bank St., near the Cold Spring Cemetery. Part of a county-wide program, old guardrails are also being replaced on Route 9D and other roads in the county. The new railings appear to be studier and often extend beyond the limits of the older railings. Workers said the guardrails on Peekskill Road would be completed in another week and a half.

  1. I wondered what was going on, and since I don’t qualify as “local traffic,” I couldn’t tell what was going on.
    This is a useful story. Thank you.
