on April 9, 2018

Overview of route 17 reconstruction project.Below is a monthly update from The New York State Department of Transportation regarding the Route 17 and Route 32 corridor at Exit 131 reconstruction project.

What to Expect

To help ensure a safe work area, temporary concrete barriers are currently being installed on Routes 32 and 17. The barriers will be used to reconfigure lanes when traffic is shifted.

Route 17 & Route 32

Traffic on Route 32 will be temporarily shifted to create a safe and unobstructed work zone. This traffic shift is scheduled to be in effect until the end of 2018.

While the number of existing lanes will remain the same, please allow for additional travel time as lanes or shoulders may be temporarily closed during off-peak hours.

Monroe-Woodbury Central School District

The Central Valley Elementary School’s athletic field parking lot will be reconstructed in the coming months. Signs will be placed to indicate when motorists may need to find alternative parking during this period of construction.

Safety is top priority

Please use extra caution when traveling through the work zone areas. Pay close attention to posted speed limits, construction signs, and workers.

In accordance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, drivers are reminded that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. Two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of one’s license.
