New York State Route 113 (NY 113) is an east–west state highway located southeast of the city of Poughkeepsie in Dutchess County, New York, in the United States. The western terminus of the route is at an intersection with U.S. Route 9 (US 9) in the town of Poughkeepsie. Its eastern terminus is at a junction with NY 376 in the Poughkeepsie hamlet of Red Oaks Mill. NY 113 is known as Spackenkill Road for the majority of its length.

Spackenkill Road was initially maintained by Dutchess County. Jurisdiction of the highway was transferred to the state of New York in 1980, at which time it was designated NY 113. Only minor realignments have occurred since.

NY 113 begins at a cloverleaf interchange with US 9 in the Dutchess County town of Poughkeepsie. West of the interchange, NY 113 continues as a local road into the IBM Poughkeepsie main plant. NY 113 heads northeast along IBM Road and over US 9 to a junction with Spackenkill Road. The portion of Spackenkill Road west of NY 113 serves as an alternate route to US 9 north from NY 113 west. NY 113 merges with Spackenkill Road, taking on its name as it heads eastward.[3]

Just before an intersection with Cedar Avenue (County Route 74 or CR 74), NY 113 passes by Spackenkill High School. The highway continues east through a residential portion of Poughkeepsie to the hamlet of Red Oaks Mill, where NY 113 ends at a junction with NY 376 (New Hackensack Road) and Vassar Road (CR 77).[3]

History[edit]

Spackenkill Road initially followed what is now IBM Road through the interchange with US 9 and into the IBM plant, where it ended at the CR 48 portion of IBM Road.[citation needed] The portion of Spackenkill Road from US 9 to NY 376 was initially maintained by Dutchess County as a county road. On April 1, 1980, ownership and maintenance of this segment of Spackenkill Road was transferred from Dutchess County to the state of New York as part of a larger highway maintenance swap between the two levels of government.[1] The highway was then designated NY 113.[4]

At some point, Spackenkill Road was realigned to follow its pre-interchange routing to US 9, which had been known as Old Spackenkill Road.[citation needed] The IBM Road name, which originally applied only to CR 48, was then extended north along the former Spackenkill Road.[citation needed]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Dutchess County.
