CATSKILL — Motorists who use Route 23A between Catskill and Palenville can expect some delays this month while a paving project takes place, Bryan Viggiani, public information officer for Region 1, of the state Department of Transportation, said Monday.
Nearly six miles of road is slated to be repaved between Whites Road in Catskill and Under Hill Road in Palenville, Viggiani said.
Drivers can expect to find alternating single lanes of traffic, controlled by flaggers, throughout the work zone.
The paving began Monday, and is expected to continue through the end of the month. Crews are scheduled to be working from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on weekdays, weather permitting, Viggiani said.
Motorists are urged to slow down and drive responsibly in work zones. Fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. Convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver license, Viggiani said.
Motorists are reminded to obey flaggers’ directions, Move over a lane, if safely possible, or slow down significantly whenever encountering roadside vehicles displaying red, white, blue, amber or green lights, including maintenance and construction vehicles in work zones, Viggiani said.
