Yesterday, traffic was at a near standstill for motorists heading to Homer from Cortland. Road work on both Route 281 and US Route 11 lead to long delays for some.
Paving work began on Route 281 from Fisher Ave to the I81 intersection while paving was being conducted on US 11 from the City of Cortland line to Clinton St. in the village of Homer.
Traffic delays lead to traffic buildup all the way to the West Main St. and Route 281 intersection.
Short notice of road work on Route 281 lead to most residents unprepared or uninformed while traveling.
Paving continues on Route 281 today, October 11th.
