Flooding closes a portion of state route 248


State Route 248 Near Cemetery Hill Road
Town of Rexville
Steuben County 

The New York State Department of Transportation today announced that state Route 248 in the county of Steuben is closed near Cemetery Hill Road in the town of Rexville.  Minor flooding in the area after Monday's rains has caused undermining of the road structure.  NYSDOT Maintenance crews are working to repair the road. 

NYSDOT expects to reopen the road by Friday morning, May 6.  In the meantime, drivers are asked to take the established detour and follow the signs to county Route 60 between the towns of Greenwood and Rexville. NYSDOT also reminds motorists to use caution when approaching the work area.
It is imperative that motorists remember to drive carefully through the many highway and bridge construction zones they will encounter this season.
