Road repairs under way
Road repairs now under way
The state Department of Transportation will be working on I-490 between Route 259 (Union Street, exit 4) in the Town of Chili and Route 19, exit 1, in the Town of LeRoy. Traffic will be reduced to a single lane from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. so pavement repairs can be made.
Ramps will not be affected.
The highway workers will begin at Route 259 and work in the westbound direction. The work zone will be approximately one mile in length. The speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph when workers are present.
This preventative maintenance work started Monday, April 20 and is expected to take about a month to complete. Once repairs are made, the same section will be resurfaced by a paving crew.
Motorists are advised to travel slowly and carefully through the work zone area.
