The New York State Department of Transportation today announced today that while painting of the State Route 223 bridge over Cayuta Creek has been completed, work will continue at this site to complete steel repairs needed to extend the life of this structure.
The road closure that is currently in place will remain while these repairs are completed. During this time motorists will continue to be detoured onto CR-24 (Decker Road) and proceed 1.3 miles to CR-3 (Wyncoop Creek Road). Turn left on CR-3 (Wyncoop Creek Road) and proceed .85 miles to NY-224. Turn right to go towards Village of Van Etten, or turn left to go back towards NY-223 (Swartwood Hill Road). Signs will be in place to help detour traffic around the road closure. All steel repairs are anticipated to be completed by December 31, 2017.
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.
