OTISVILLE — The Orange County Department of Public Works on Friday temporarily closed the Otisville Viaduct to make repairs to its exterior girder, according to an announcement from a county spokesman.

The Otisville Viaduct carries Route 211, also known as Highland Avenue, over Wallace Street in the Village of Otisville.

Drivers should take alternative routes to avoid the viaduct, located between Main Street and Route 211, until the roadway reopens, according to the announcement.
