Watch for Single Lane of Traffic, Flaggers on State Route 73 in Town of North Elba, Essex County

The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) is advising motorists that a 1.2-mile stretch of State Route 73 between Upper Cascade Lake and Bobsled Run Road in the Town of North Elba, Essex County, will be reduced to a single lane with alternating flows of traffic controlled by flaggers from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, July 10, and Tuesday, July 11, to facilitate a paving project. All work is weather dependent and paving could continue through the remainder of the week if inclement weather occurs. Motorists should plan accordingly and be prepared for delays.

Motorists are urged to slow down and drive responsibly in work zones. Fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. Convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual’s driver license.

Motorists are reminded to Move Over a lane, if safely possible, or slow down significantly whenever encountering roadside vehicles displaying red, white, blue, amber or green lights, including maintenance and construction vehicles in work zones.
