Funeral services for an officer who died from a 9/11-related illness may cause some traffic delays in Dutchess County this Wednesday.

Paul Stuewer, a 26-year police officer, passed away on Oct. 5. He died from an illness he obtained during his assignment at the World Trade Center after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, officials say.

State Police announced that on Wednesday authorities will be regulating traffic flow on Cedar Valley Road in the Town of Poughkeepsie to one direction of travel from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m for Stuewer’s funeral.

Barring extreme emergencies, vehicles will only be permitted to enter from New Hackensack Road and exit onto Spackenkill Road, police say.

Vehicles that attempt to enter Cedar Valley Road from Spackenkill Road, will be redirected to enter off of New Hackensack Road.

For the safety of everyone that plans to attend the funeral, troopers will be monitoring the flow of traffic on side roads near Cedar Valley Road and re-directing local residents to their destination.

Traffic assistance will be provided by the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department and the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office.

Stuewer worked for New York State Police in Poughkeepsie from 1990 until 2004 when he was promoted to investigator. He was named sergeant in 2005.
