Route 4 to be closed for two weeks as rock is removed

T he state Department of Transportation has decided to close both lanes of Route 4 in Comstock as they remove additional rock from the area near last month’s rock slide.

The department has initially planned to keep one lane open for the duration of the six- to eight-week project, which began Monday.

But it was determined the project could be done in less time and for less expense if both lanes were closed.

The closure will occur between the Kelsey Pond Road and the intersection with Route 22 from Friday, Nov. 30, to Friday, Dec. 14.

The road is slated to reopen to one lane of alternating traffic controlled by signals on Dec. 14 and remain that way through Dec. 21.

Passenger vehicles will be able use the detour from Clay Hill Road to Dewey’s Bridge and County Route 14 to Route 22.

Trucks will be detoured to Route 149 and Route 40 to Route 22.

At approximately 9 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 15, nearly 1,000 cubic yards of stone came detached from a cliff on the southbound side of the highway.

It took crews more than 30 hours to remove all the stone and the portion of the road on which the rock landed was damaged and is still in bad shape. That section of road is expected to be resurfaced as part of the work.

No one was injured during the slide and officials believe it was the result of natural causes.
