POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Motorists are being told to expect delays while traveling on Route 9 in the city of Poughkeepsie, according to state Department of Transportation spokeswoman Gina DiSarro.

Highway crews began working on the road 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 20 and will continue to 3 p.m. through Friday, Jan. 27, she said.

The traffic stoppages are expected to occur between Pine Street and Fox Street in the city.

They are expected to last an average of 10 minutes, DiSarro said.

Motorists should take alternate routes when possible, she added.

Drivers are being asked to be extra careful when traveling through work zones and to pay attention to flaggers and all traffic control signs.

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 license.  Fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone.
