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.
