The New York State Department of Transportation today announced that cold-in-place recycling and milling will begin the week of June 22 on state Route 36 from Willey Road north to the Livingston county line. Paving will follow beginning the week of July 18.


The recycling process will be done from Willey Road to the southern entrance to Stony Brook State Park; from there to the bridge at the northern entrance to the park, cold milling will be performed. The final stretch of the project from the bridge to the county line will also be recycled. After a minimum of a 10 day cure period, the entire project will be paved weather permitting.


While this work is taking place, traffic will be maintained with a one-lane, two-way traffic pattern controlled by flag persons and a pilot vehicle. Work during these days will begin around 7 a.m. and should be completed by 7 p.m. Motorists should expect delays. It is strongly advisable that trucks should seek alternate routes if at all possible.


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.
