Long-term Road Work in Broome and Bradford Counties
Motorists should be aware of a couple long-term construction projects in Broome and Bradford Counties that are getting underway.
The New York State Department of Transportation advises Route 11 from Castle Creek to Cortland County will be having periodic lane closures for guiderail replacement from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily into July. Flaggers will be controlling alternating one-way traffic through the open lanes. The closures will begin in the northbound direction.
In Pennsylvania, PennDOT says the heavily traveled Route 6 will be undergoing resurfacing for several months.
The work on the $3.2 million safety improvement project between Wonder View Lane (Route 4001) and the Sugar Creek Bridge in North Towanda Township in Bradford County is expected to last close to three-and-a-half months through the summer.
Motorists can expect single lane closures with flaggers directing traffic during the daylight hours. PennDOT says in June, the eastbound lane will be closed and traffic will be detoured to route 220 and Patterson Boulevard.
The project involves milling and resurfacing, addition of a new center-turn lane and slope stabilization.
Officials say the work is scheduled to be finished in late August.
