****County Route 27 Bridge Closing – Detour Route and Emergency Services Plan**** 

On June 1, 2015 County Route 27 was closed from County Route 10 to Pumpkin Hollow. The closure makes possible the total replacement of the 80-year old East Taghkanic Bridge over Taghkanic Creek. The work is expected to take about four (4) months. 

 Detour Route: 

County Route 27, County Route 11/11A, NYS Route 23 and County Route 7. 

 Emergency Services: 

 ✦Taghkanic Volunteer Fire Company: The Ancram Volunteer Fire Company has a standing agreement with Taghkanic Fire Company to supply mutual aid. The Copake Volunteer Fire Company has been engaged to provide additional mutual aid to address the specific logistics imposed by the bridge closure. 

 ✦EMS services are from Copake and need no additional backup.
