Citizen Preparedness Training

With severe weather events becoming more frequent and more extreme, it is more important than ever that New Yorkers are prepared for disasters. The NY Citizen Preparedness Training Program teaches residents to have the tools and resources to prepare for any type of disaster, respond accordingly and recover as quickly as possible to pre-disaster conditions. The training course will provide an introduction to responding to a natural or man-made disaster. Participants will be advised on how to properly prepare for any disaster, including developing a family emergency plan and stocking up on emergency supplies

Route 23A between Haines Falls and Palenville, Greene County, Closed Oct. 11 to Oct. 14

Motorists are advised that a three and-a-half-mile stretch of Route 23A between Haines Falls and Palenville, in the towns of Hunter and Catskill in Greene County, will be fully closed from Tuesday, Oct. 11, at 7 a.m. until Friday, Oct. 14, at 4 p.m., weather permitting, as part of the New York State Department of Transportation’s $3.4 million project to repair slope areas on the Mountain Cloves Scenic Byway section of this state highway.

The closure, between Wingate Road in Haines Falls and the Route 23A bridge over the Kaaterskill Creek entering Palenville, will allow for the delivery of concrete stabilizer pods to the slope area sites and place these pods off the roadway (because of their weight, the stabilizer pods cannot be left on the roadbed).

During the closure period, the official detour route will send motorists to Routes 32, 23 and 296.

DOT’s work to repair slope areas is intended to minimize the chance of future slope failures that could lead to extended highway closures. In the past, emergency closures of this section of Route 23A have occurred following slope failures caused by flooding of the Kaaterskill Creek.

Motorists are reminded that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. In accordance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver’s license.
