City of Albany announces road closure for section of Jefferson Street

Jan. 17—ALBANY — A section of North Jefferson Street is scheduled to remain closed through Thursday.

The maintenance work on the sidewalk and shoulder will require closing traffic lanes in one direction while maintaining traffic flow in the opposite direction between Seventh Avenue and Washington Street, Albany officials said in a news release.

The northbound traffic lanes were closed first and will be re-opened after work is completed, at which time the southbound lanes will be closed.

The city of Albany said that the work may cause delays in drive times, and drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes while the work is underway.

The city expects the work to be completed by Thursday, unless hindered by inclement weather..
