News roundup: Detour in Bergen

posted by Philip Anselmo in wbta, Medina, Orleans County.

Replacement of a bridge in Bergen should take about six weeks, and that means motorists will have to take a detour around the site on West Sweden Road, south of Warboys Road, according to WBTA's Dan Fischer. That detour will take you seven miles out of the way, says Fischer. Looking at the map, it seems folks can take Route 19 if they're heading north or south west of that area. Route 237 runs the parallel in the east. Anyone know any other ways in and out of that area?

Medina Memorial Hospital in Orleans County was the site of a fortunate false alarm yesterday, when an unidentified woman was brought in to the emergency room for complaint of a rash contracted after she opened an envelope. Some 40 people had to undergo decontamination. The woman was kept in isolation until postal inspectors later determined that there was no contaminant in the envelope or on the telephone bill inside. Medina's hospital administrator called it good practice!

I live off of Warboys Rd, and the detours that they have set up are the ONLY ways it can be! UGHHH! I work in the village of Bergen, and now, rather than 6 miles to work, it's going to be about 12 miles. oh well.. I feel for the bus routes! But, if the bridge needs to be fixed, it needs to be fixed.
