The New York State Department of Transportation announced today that bridge joint replacement work will begin on Interstate 86 eastbound over the Cohocton River in the town of Avoca on July 9, 2019.
Work will consist of removing and replacing existing bridge joints.
For the duration of this work, one lane of traffic will be maintained.
Work is anticipated to last approximately two weeks, weather permitting.
Motorists may encounter flaggers, lane closures and could experience travel delays. It is imperative that motorists remember this season to drive carefully through the many highway and bridge construction zones they will encounter.
Motorists are urged to slow down and safely move over when approaching roadside vehicles displaying red, white, blue, amber or green lights, including maintenance and construction vehicles in work zones. To learn more about the Move Over law and what we’re doing to keep workers and motorists safe in highway construction zones, visit www.ny.gov/workzonesafety.
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.
