SARATOGA SPRINGS — Reconstruction work is underway of the High Rock Avenue and Excelsior Avenue intersection with the goals of improving safety and traffic operations of a historically difficult intersection and connect the new trail on High Rock and Excelsior Avenue. 

“While this road closure is a major nuisance, a safer, improved roadway awaits as well as a continuous multi-use trail along High Rock Avenue from Lake Avenue to the eastern end of Excelsior Avenue,” the city said in a statement released Sept. 6. “In the meantime, we appreciate your patience.”

Work hours will generally be between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. During construction, all businesses will remain open and be able to be accessed past the Local Traffic Only signs. Local Traffic Only signs will be placed at Maple Avenue and Rock Street, High Rock and Circular Street, Warren Street and Elbern/Avery Street, and Excelsior and East Avenue.

Completion is anticipated by Nov. 11, weather and conditions permitting.

A full map of the of detour plan is available on the Saratoga Greenbelt Trail page on the City’s website: www.saratogasprings.org/2425/Saratoga-Greenbelt-Trail
