News on Webster NY road work and road projects.
This page is updated as we receive new information.
Posted on 06/14/2017 From NYSDOT Filed Offices: Route 104 and Ridge Road Intersections:
Utility relocation work continues at the Ridge Road intersections. Some new utility poles are in place and more are coming. Underground work has not begun but will happen sometime in July. Some pedestrian crossing work has been started and more will follow.
There are no lane closures planned for the immediate future but lane closures will take place this summer. Only one road closing is schedule to take place sometime and that will be Hard Road from Ridge Road north to the entrance to Hegedorn's Market. That road closing will be for 2-3 weeks and is needed to rebuild the road to remove the hill and improve line-of-sight at the intersection.
Bridge deck work on Route 104 is nearly complete and is scheduled to be finished by July 15th. There will be daytime lane closures while that last of that work is completed.
There will be NO WORK ON EITHER PROJECT DURING THE WEEKEND OF JUNE 16, 17, AND 18 DUES TO THE SOCCER TOURNAMENT AND NO WORK WILL TAKE PLACE THE 4TH OF JULY WEEKEND STARTING AT NOON ON THE 30TH OF JUNE THROUGH THE 4TH OF JULY. WORK WILL RESUME ON JULY 5TH.
As always, avoid the Ridge Road congestion by using alternate routes such as the Route 104 access roads or State and Plank Roads.
Posted on 05/11/2017 From NYSDOT: Webster Empire Blvd Intersection Improvements to Begin:
We would like to provide an update of the status of an upcoming planned highway construction project on Route 404 (Empire Blvd.) in the Town of Webster, Monroe County. Work is set to begin on or about the week of May 22. Utility relocation work will begin earlier.
This project will ease traffic congestion at two major intersections, Five Mile Line and Hard roads, which will improve highway safety for all users of the highway. Slight modifications to sidewalk ramps will be made to bring three locations, Black Cherry Blvd, Webster Commons Blvd, and Holt Road intersections, into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Right turn lanes will be added on Empire Blvd. in both directions at Five Mile Line Road. A right turn lane will also be provided on Five Mile Line Road in the northbound direction. The left turn lanes will be longer to provide more vehicle storage. A dedicated bicycle lane between the travel lane and the right turn lanes will be added on Empire Blvd. A sidewalk will be provided to accommodate pedestrians. A new traffic signal system with a pedestrian crosswalk and countdown timers will be installed.
A right turn lane, bicycle lane and sidewalk will be added on Route 404 in the westbound direction at the intersection of Hard Road. A new traffic signal system, including protected left turn arrows in all directions, a pedestrian crosswalk and countdown timers will be installed.
Traffic will generally be maintained on-site with restrictions limiting construction during peak travel hours. Access to driveways will be maintained during construction. Hard Road, north of Empire Blvd., will be closed for a three-week period this summer in order to raise the profile of the southbound approach to the intersection which will improve sight distance. Traffic will temporarily be detoured onto Holt Road via Route 104.
The project is expected to be complete by June 2018.
