May 31, 2019

From the NYS DOT – Road Work On State Route 417, Between Erwin and Addison Towns of Erwin and Addison, Steuben County

The New York State Department of Transportation today announced that, weather permitting, on Monday, June 3, 2019, state and construction forces will begin work on a highway resurfacing project between the Village of Addison, ending east of the State Route 417/Interstate 99 interchange on State Route 417 in the Town of Erwin. As part of the process pavement markings will be removed and temporary stripes will be placed. Drivers should use extra caution in these areas.

Traffic will be maintained with a one-lane, two-way traffic pattern controlled by flaggers on State Route 417. Work is anticipated to last approximately two weeks.

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

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.
