Judge Road reopened today by DOT

posted by Howard B. Owens in Oakfield, Route 63, Judge Route.

Route 63/Judge Road in Oakfield, closed for three weeks after a sink hole developed, was reopened today by the Department of Transportation.

Lori Maher, spokeswoman for the DOT said officials determined that the sink hole was the result of minor settlement and probably exacerbated by dry weather, which lowered the water table.

The situation has been "remedied" Maher said and the detour removed.

Not according to the DOT. I asked that question specifically and got the response included in the story.
