“Resurfacing of Route 96 in Perinton, Pittsford, Phelps starts today

Local News – August 3, 2009 – 9:11am

A two-month-long resurfacing project on Route 96 in Perinton and Pittsford, as well as in Phelps, Ontario County, is scheduled to begin today, according to the state Department of Transportation.

The $966,000 project stretches 2.6 miles on the busy roadway, between Route 64 in Pittsford and Kreag Road in Perinton, said DOT spokeswoman Lori Maher.

Work will include the repair of pavement joints, drainage work, pavement milling and overlay and fresh pavement markings, she said. It will also include installing detectable warning fields to sidewalks in order to alert pedestrians with visual impairments of intersections in the area.

Traffic on the two-lane road will be reduced to a single-lane alternating pattern after 9 a.m. each day, to avoid congestion during the daily morning commute, Maher said.

The project is expected to be completed by October.

The Ontario County work runs between State Route 88 to Lester Road and will include pavement milling overlay and fresh pavement markings. Traffic on the two-lane roadway will be reduced to a one-lane alternating pattern with flaggers and is expected to be completed by Labor Day weekend.

The state Department of Transportation office serving the greater Rochester region has been able to double its preventative maintenance paving program this year because of the economic recovery funds provided to us,” said acting Regional DOT Director Robert Traver.

Ramsey Constructors of Lakeville, Livingston County, will complete the roadwork. The project is funded through the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.”
