I have written about Reynolds Road in the past for historical reasons. However, this post is a notice about a road closure. Reynolds Road in Monroe NY is often used as a shortcut for those wishing to go from the Rye Hill / Mine Road area to Orange Turnpike. Anyone who has driven this way in the past year has seen that work has been progressing on a new passthrough that starts directly across from the end of Mine Road, and exits at the middle of Reynolds Road. The construction on the new road is nearing completion but in order to finish the work, Reynolds Road will be closed, starting May 11th and continuing for a month or two.
If you get to Reynolds Road and see the closure, you can continue north on Rye Hill Road to Stage Road and then either turn left towards the Gooseponds area or turn right to continue to Orange Turnpike.
Hopefully the work will be done very quickly so area residents will have another option for getting from home to their shopping and business destinations.
