State Route 248
Towns of Independence and Willing
Allegany County
The New York State Department of Transportation today announced that pavement recycling work will begin on state Route 248 on Wednesday, June 8, 2016, weather permitting.  The project will extend from the intersection of state Route 248 and state Route 19 in the town of Willing to approximately 0.38 miles east of the intersection of state Route 248 and state Route 248A, for a total of approximately 9.31 miles.  The scope of this project includes the towns of Independence and Willing in Allegany County.
An asphalt pavement course will be placed in the same location at a later time, weather permitting.  A new advisory will be issued at that time.
Motorists will encounter flaggers, lane closures and could experience travel delays.  It is imperative that motorists remember to drive carefully through the many highway and bridge construction zones they will encounter this season.
Motorists are reminded that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone.  In accordance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver’s license.
