 Work on the primary site, located approximately 4.5 miles north of Hammondsport, is expected to begin on Monday, September 10.  Beginning on or about Monday, September 10, the road will be closed at this location.  The full road closure is expected to be between eight to ten weeks in duration.  While the road is closed, the work will be active during daylight hours, seven days per week.  After the work requiring full closure is completed, one lane operation will be restored while finishing work is done. Traffic during the road closure will be directed to a detour using Steuben CR 76 and Boyd Hill Road.  It is anticipated that all work will be completed by the end of November.  Variable Message Signs will be placed at each end of the detour to give road users advance notice of the road closure.

Work at the second site, located approximately 0.8 miles north of Hammondsport, is expected to begin on or about September 5. Two-way traffic will be reduced to one lane, accommodated with temporary signals.  Work is expected to take approximately 4 weeks.

 Work on the remaining sites, located from the Hammondsport Village line north 4 miles, is expected to begin on or about October 22.  This will be a mobile operation with traffic reduced to one lane with flagger guidance for the duration of the work.  Completion of this work is expected by the third week in November.

Motorists are reminded that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone.  In accordance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver license.
