Route 32 Traffic Shift Expected to Occur
Town of Woodbury, Orange County
Motorists are advised that, as part of the ongoing Woodbury Transit & Economic Development Hub Reconstruction project, the previously announced traffic shift expected for Route 32 this week, is scheduled to occur over two nights. The first night of the shift will begin tonight, Tuesday, December 18, 2018, at 11 p.m. and involve shifting Route 32 in the areas of Larkin Drive, Route 6, and Locey Lane. This work is expected to last until approximately 6 a.m. tomorrow, Wednesday, December 19. The second night of the shift will occur on Wednesday, December 19, 2018, at approximately 11:45 p.m. and will include the remainder of the work zone (the areas of Route 17, Nininger Road, Central Valley Elementary School and Woodbury Commons Premium Outlets). Work on this section is expected to last until approximately 6 a.m. Thursday, December 20, 2018.
The number of lanes will remain the same and additional signage will be in place to guide motorists through the new traffic pattern. Extra flaggers will be on-site to help with traffic mitigation during the traffic shifts.
For more information related to the project and its schedule, please visit https://www.exit131ny.com/news. Drivers are asked to use caution when traveling through the work zone area and pay particular attention to all traffic control devices, including signs and flaggers.
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.
NYSDOT and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee recently unveiled a public service announcement and social media campaign focused on the importance of respecting flagging personnel. This year’s work zone safety campaign, “Flaggers have families too,” is designed to remind motorists that flagging personnel are not attempting to disrupt traffic – they are simply doing their jobs and want to get home safely at the end of each work day. The PSA can be viewed here and here.
