The New York State Department of Transportation is advising motorists that the Exit 20 ramp from the southbound Adirondack Northway (Interstate 87) to State Route 149 in the Town of Queensbury, Warren County, will be closed to traffic beginning Wednesday, Nov. 9, weather permitting, to facilitate repairs to the Gurney Lane overpass. The work is expected to be complete by the end of the year.

Additionally, Gurney Lane, which crosses the interstate and connects to U.S. Route 9, will also be closed to eastbound traffic at this location for the duration of this work. Gurney Lane will remain open to westbound traffic and the remaining ramps to and from the Northway at Exit 20 will also remain open.

Southbound Northway motorists will be detoured to Exit 19 for State Route 254 (Aviation Road), where they can access the northbound Northway to reach Exit 20. Eastbound Gurney Lane motorists wishing to cross the Northway will be detoured to the southbound Northway to follow the same detour.

Motorists are urged to slow down and drive responsibly in work zones. Fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. Convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver license.

Motorists are reminded to Move Over a lane, if safely possible, or slow down significantly whenever encountering roadside vehicles displaying red, white, blue, amber or green lights, including maintenance and construction vehicles in work zones.
