No Lane Closures at ‘Four Corners’ Intersection During Peak Summer Travel Season

Four corners intersection

Catskill summer travelers can breathe a sigh of relief, as plans for major road work at the busy ‘four corners’ intersection NYS Route 42 and County Road 52 (Old Falls Road) and County Road 53 (Brickman Road) are being suspended from July 4 until Labor Day, sources tell Hamodia.  Road work will go as planned until July 4, which will include lane and shoulder closures from 7:00AM-3:30PM Monday-Thursday, and until 12:00PM on Fridays.

After the plans for construction were announced, the Jewish Community Council of Sullivan reached out to State Senator Mike Martucci and other elected officials, who succeeded in delaying the construction work until after the bulk of summer traffic has ended. The proposed construction would have caused lane closures and massive traffic delays for people traveling in the Catskills area.

Work on the side of the roads will still be done during the scheduled time, but there will be no lane closures. No work will be done at all on Saturdays and Sundays.

Martucci is reportedly working on rescheduling all Friday work to be done overnight on Thursdays, to further avoid delays.

To increase safety at the junction – one of the busiest traffic hubs in the region – the DOT plans to build turning lanes on Rt. 42 and both country roads, replace the signal hardware for the car lanes and for pedestrians, repair the shoulders and install additional sidewalks.
