SARATOGA COUNTY — Delays in the procurement of materials, labor shortages, and general supply chain issues have combined to cause a delay in meeting a previously anticipated September completion of the Ashdown Road bridge project, according to a statement released this week by Saratoga Deputy County Administrator Ridge Harris.
Clifton Park Supervisor Phil Barrett, who serves as Chairman of the County’s Public Works committee visited the Ashdown Road bridge construction site July 26 to receive a briefing on the project’s status.
“The delays are disappointing, but the county is committed to this important investment and will continue to work with the engineers and contractors to ensure the project is complete and the road is reopened as quickly and as safely as possible,” Barrett said, in a statement. “When completed, this project will bring enhanced safety to the many residents who utilize Ashdown Road.”
Construction began in late spring. The new estimated project timeline has not been finalized.
