Expect delays on routes through Pembroke, Darien and Corfu

Press Release:

Paving work slows traffic on Rte 77 in Pembroke, Darien and Corfu

A project to resurface a section of Rte 77 in the towns of Darien and Pembroke and a section of Rte 33 in the Village of Corfu began May 26. Variable message signs have been placed along the corridors to notify motorists. The scheduled completion date is this fall.

Motorists should expect one-way alternating traffic patterns controlled by flaggers during daytime hours. Due to the large traffic volumes along Rte 77 bound to and from the nearby theme park, camping resort and concert venue, restrictions have been incorporated into the contract to prohibit lane closures after noon on Fridays and all day Saturdays, Sundays and select special event days. Crews plan to start at the northern project limits.

Final plans are to resurface the 8.5-mile section of Rte 77 from Rte 5 in Pembroke to just south of Rte 20 in Darien and the 1.5 mile-section of Rte 33 within the Corfu Village limits. The top layer of worn, deteriorated asphalt will be removed with a milling machine and replaced with a new layer of asphalt and fresh pavement markings. The six-foot-wide shoulders will also be resurfaced. This paving work will extend the life of the pavement 8-10 years.

Motorists are advised to travel slowly and carefully through the work zone area.
