HAINES FALLS, N.Y. (AP) — State highway crews will be working on a busy road through a scenic part of the Catskills through the fall foliage season.

Starting this week, Route 23A between Haines Falls and Palenville will be reduced to a single lane while highway crews make repairs to a slope.

The work is part of a $3.4 million contract to repair at least 10 slope areas on the Mountain Cloves Scenic Byway section of Route 23A in Greene County.

Flooding on the Kaaterskill Creek has caused slope collapses that closed the road in the past.

Next month, crews plan to close the road through the entire project area from Haines Falls down the mountain to the Kaaterskill Creek Bridge in Palenville while vehicles deliver concrete stabilizer pods.
