By the time you read this you will have seen some work being done on the long awaited road reconstruction of Route 404 through Webster. On May 21st the New York State Department of Transportation (DOT) started to put up message boards to alert motorists of the upcoming work to be done.
On Tuesday, May 27th the contractor will begin taking core samples (at night) along with doing light milling work to fill in some of the larger pot holes along the route. (I know the whole route is a pot hole!)
After this work is completed they will then start with the bigger task of taking off all of the existing asphalt, called milling, and putting down new asphalt. All of this work will be done at night with flood lights being used to light up the roadway for night time workers.
This project will start at Abbott’s and end at Barrett Drive right before the Village. There have been a lot of questions on whether or not this project will continue on to Phillips Road this year, and the answer to that from the DOT is no.
That project is scheduled for next year when the DOT will also redo the intersections from Abbott’s to Barrett Drive within the town. This 2015 project will include upgrading signal lights and providing larger turn lanes in some of these intersections mainly at Five Mile Line, Hard Road and Holt Road.
From a December 5, 2013 letter from the DOT, they told me they would install a left hand signal at Hard Road early in 2014. I had a conversation with them on Monday and now I am being told work will begin in a month … we shall see. This turn signal is needed to stop the stacking we are currently experiencing during peak times at Ridge Road and Hard Road.
First Responder Water Spray Park
The weather and wet grounds have held us up for the past two weeks on getting construction going on the water park at the Recreation Center. Well, this week they did get started and boxed out the park area and put in the stone base.
On Tuesday, May 27th we will have the new road staked out with survey markers so we can proceed on to a new road layout and begin the boxing out for the road to be built by our Highway Department.
