Old Route 219 to Close for Part of Next Week

The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) has announced that the inspection of the former Route 219 (South Cascade-Miller Road) Bridge over Cattaraugus Creek in the town of Concord, Erie County, and the town of Ashford, Cattaraugus County, is scheduled to begin on September 30, 2013.

Due to the limited access at the bridge site and size of the inspection equipment, it will be necessary to temporarily close the bridge for a period of time to facilitate a portion of the inspection. The bridge is scheduled to be closed on Monday, September 30 thru Friday, October 4, 2013 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. The remainder of the bridge inspection will be done while the bridge is open, with traffic restricted to a single lane controlled by flaggers.

Motorists are advised to follow the posted detour routes. 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’s license.
