Bridge Maintenance and Repair
Interstate 99 over Glendening Creek
Town of Lindley, Steuben County
The New York State Department of Transportation announced today that maintenance and repair work will begin September 6, 2019 on the bridges carrying Interstate 99 over Glendening Creek, south of Exit 6, in the Town of Lindley. Work will include structural lifting and replacing of bearings, removing and replacing concrete on abutments, as well as minor drainage work.
This work is expected to last approximately seven weeks and is weather dependent. During this time, long-term stationary single lane closures of Interstate 99 northbound and southbound will be utilized at the structures for access and structural lifting operations. Motorists may experience travel delays. It is imperative that motorists remember this season to drive carefully through the many highway and bridge construction zones they will encounter.
Motorists are urged to slow down and safely move over when approaching roadside vehicles displaying red, white, blue, amber or green lights, including maintenance and construction vehicles in work zones. To learn more about the Move Over law and what we’re doing to keep workers and motorists safe in highway construction zones, visit www.ny.gov/workzonesafety.
Motorists are reminded that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. In accordance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver license.
