POUGHKEEPSIE – The Dutchess County Department of Public Works (DPW) has announced work is expected to begin on or around August 1 to replace Bridge C-19 on Hollow Road (CR 14) in the Town of Clinton.
The bridge, located over the Little Wappinger Creek, was originally built in 1931 and is in need of replacement due to structural deficiencies.
Project work includes the replacement of the existing bridge and abutments, improvements to the existing curve across the bridge, widened travel lanes and shoulders, and the installation of new stone parapets to maintain the historical landscape of the area surrounding the bridge.
Project work is anticipated to be complete by late fall.
Hollow Road will be closed for the duration of the project and a detour route will be posted.

Motorists are advised to plan for additional time and to exercise extra caution on the detour route, obey the posted speed limits, traffic advisory signs, and the directions from flaggers in the work zone to ensure the safety of workers and other motorists.
Bridge C-19 averages approximately 1,500 vehicles per day.
