The New York State Department of Transportation announced today that bridge work will resume on Interstate 86 over County Route 333 on Sunday August 4, 2019. The bridge is located at exit 41 in the town of Campbell, Steuben County. Work will consist of replacing the joints on the bridge deck and will take place at night between the hours of 7:00pm and 6:00am. Interstate traffic will be detoured around the work area using the exit and entrance ramps of the interchange. Flag persons will be stationed to control the cross traffic on County Route 333. During the day when no work is taking place, Interstate 86 will be open to a single lane for traffic and County Route 333 will have both lanes open. Work is anticipated to last approximately 5 nights, weather permitting.
Motorists may encounter flaggers, and lane closures and could 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.

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.
