Week of February 3, 2020
From NYSDOT regarding the I-587 Roundabout roadwork: Over the next two weeks, work zone signing and variable message boards will be installed to notify residents and motorists of the work zone.
Next week, the monument and flags will be removed and stored, and tree removal will begin. Between 9:00am and 4:00pm, brief traffic stoppages for less than five minutes may occur. Additional site work, including overhead sign removal and lighting, will continue with little to no impact to traffic.
NYSDOT recently unveiled a new public service announcement and social media campaign focused on the importance of driving responsibly in work zones. The video highlights the importance of paying attention in work zones and obeying New York State’s “Move Over” laws.
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.
