Rt 376 at Zack’s Way: Almost a Right Hook

I’m approaching Zack’s Way at about 20 mph when a truck appears to my left:

Rt 376 at Zacks Way - Right Hook Setup - 2021-06-04
Rt 376 at Zacks Way – Right Hook Setup – 2021-06-04

I cannot see the turn signals, but I’ve been around this block several times.

This time, however, what I know (and the driver apparently doesn’t) is that Zack’s Way has been closed for two days while a film crew does something to create The White House Plumbers along that stretch of road, with barricades and City of Poughkeepsie police cars across the entrance to prevent bystanders from wandering in.

At least I’ll have witnesses …

NYS DOT installed a pair of Variable Message Signs showing ZACK'S WAY | CLOSED | Thursday & Friday on either side of the intersection:

Rt 376 at Zacks Way - Closure VMS - 2021-06-04
Rt 376 at Zacks Way – Closure VMS – 2021-06-04

Fortunately, the driver figured it out before our paths crossed:

Rt 376 at Zacks Way - Right Hook Miss - 2021-06-04
Rt 376 at Zacks Way – Right Hook Miss – 2021-06-04

But, hey, those signs are easy to overlook, too …

I have typed “Zach’s Way”, rather than the correct “Zack’s Way”, on several posts.
