New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) Commissioner Joan McDonald announced that work has begun on a $19.8 million project to replace the bridge carrying U.S. Route 11 over I-87 and to reconstruct and rehabilitate approximately 2 mi. (3.2 km) of I-87 in Champlain, Clinton County.

“DOT has worked hard to develop a project that will not only replace an aging structure, but also will enhance transportation mobility,” she said. “The project features roundabouts, a first for the area, to allow for a freer flow of traffic and increased safety at this location.”

The project will replace the bridge carrying U.S. Route 11 over I-87, as well as reconstructing the on and off ramps to accommodate roundabouts on either end of the project. The roundabouts will allow traffic to move more smoothly by requiring motorists only to yield when exiting and entering I-87, instead of coming to a complete stop. The signalized intersections currently in use will be eliminated.

The project, awarded to Luck Bros Inc. of Plattsburgh, Clinton County, is scheduled for completion in late fall of 2015.
