The New York State Department of Transportation today announced that crews are performing scheduled washing, sealing and maintenance work on a number of bridges along Interstate 86 and Interstate 99 in eastern Steuben County.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane in these areas during these operations.

These lane closures may move between multiple bridge sites throughout a day and are expected to be in the area for approximately 3 weeks while maintenance work is being performed. 

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.

It is imperative that motorists remember to drive carefully through the many highway and bridge construction zones they will encounter this season.

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.
