All open burning is prohibited in the Village from March 16th to May 31st.

Open burning is the single greatest cause of wildfires in New York. Dry conditions and the close proximity of homes in the Village makes open burning extremely dangerous.  Smoke from open fires can be overbearing and unhealthy for neighbors, especially those with lung disorders.  Please be smart and considerate of your neighbors and the law.

To report an illegal open fire or a nuisance fire, you can call the DEC hotline at 1-844-332-3267 or the local fire department.  The fire department has the authority to extinguish or order extinguished any open fire being conducted in violation of any provision of the our local Open Burn Law.


Route 395 (Main Street) to be Resurfaced Starting May 25th.

NYSDOT will begin road work on Route 395 through the Village of Delanson on May 25th.  The work will involve milling of the existing road surface and paving of a new one.  The limits of work will be from Route 7 to Route 20.  It is expected that the project will last approximately 2 weeks, depending upon the weather. Work will be done Monday through Friday, and the hours are planned to be from 7 am until 7 pm. 

The roadway will be reduced to one lane, controlled by flaggers to allow alternating one-way traffic.  Side roads will also have flaggers to control traffic.  The road will be milled completely prior to repaving, so it should be expected to have a milled riding surface temporarily.


Bridge Deck to be Replaced on the Rte 20 Bridge over Schoharie Creek.

The Bridge Deck Replacement of the Rte 20 bridge over the Schoharie Creek is starting on Friday, April 15, 2022. The current Work schedule will be Monday – Friday (7 am to 5 pm) and Saturdays if needed.  In order to provide a safe work area, there will be alternating one-way traffic on the bridge controlled by a temporary signal system operating 24 hours per day. Because of the required placement of barriers on the bridge, the setup for the work will also require that the northernmost section of Old Route 30 (Schenectady County Route 157) between Route 30 and Mexico Road be closed during construction; a signed detour will be in place to direct traffic between Old Route 30 and Route 30. Also, Charlston Street will be closed at the intersection of Route 20 during the Stage One configuration; Traffic will also be directed to a posted detour.  The anticipated length for Stage One Construction will be to the End of July.  Then Stage Two will start.  The Detour will be the same but for a change on Charlston Street.  Updates of the progress of the work as to when the completion of Stage One will be and the Start of Stage Two with information of the Detours will be upcoming.
