Officials with the state D.O.T. have reopened the Route 38 bridge in the village of Freeville (Tompkins County), months after replacement work began in May on the section over Fall Creek. (more info on the project here)
While the temporary Peruville Road detour has been lifted, roadwork and construction continue in the village and drivers are asked to remain cautious. Be sure to pay attention to all traffic control devices, including signs and flaggers.
As a reminder, fines are doubled for speeding in work zones and convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of a driver’s license, in accordance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005.
“This new bridge is replacing an aging structure that serves as a critical link in the Tompkins County community,” D.O.T. Acting Commissioner Marie Therese Domingue said when work began in May. “The project exemplifies how Governor Cuomo is working with local communities to make smart transportation investments that enhance mobility and promote economic growth to help keep the Southern Tier Soaring.”
