The New York State Department of Transportation is advising motorists that crews are scheduled to begin paving operations on a portion of State Route 95 in Franklin County on Wednesday, May 20. Work is expected to be completed Friday, May 29.
Paving will be done along State Route 95 in the Town of Bombay, Franklin County, between the Moira and Bombay town line and the Hamlet of Bombay. Paving activities are weather dependent and subject to change, based upon conditions.
Motorists traveling through the highway work zone should expect traffic controlled by flaggers and pilot vehicles, as well as minor delays.
Motorists are urged to slow down and safely move over when driving through work zones and whenever encountering roadside vehicles displaying red, white, blue, amber or green lights, including maintenance and construction vehicles in work zones.
A recent NYSDOT public service announcement highlights the importance of driving responsibly and 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.
