The New York State Department of Transportation today announced that bridge painting work will begin on August 14, 2019, on the bridge carrying State Route 417 over Tuscarora Creek in the town of Woodhull, Steuben County.
Work on the bridge is expected to last approximately 4 weeks. The project will consist of painting the primary and secondary steel members of the structure. While this work is taking place, traffic will be maintained by flaggers in one lane.
Motorists may encounter flaggers, lane shifts 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.
