New Scotland Archives The Altamont Enterprise, July 29, 2010

NEW SCOTLAND Krumkill Road is open again and will likely move slightly to the south.
On June 25, the town closed a section of the road near the Normans Kill because for years the fill beneath that stretch of road has been sliding, creating a scarp, or a break in the pavement.
The town has fixed the surface of the road in the area to serve for the near future and will begin the process to move the road roughly 1,000 feet to the south, said Darrell Duncan, the highway superintendent.
He was unsure of how soon the project could begin, since first the town has to test the “quality of the sub-base,” which could take six months to a year, before acquiring the property. He said the cost could not yet be determined.
Until then, the town will keep monitoring the current road, he said.
