RE: Chemung County DPW Road Closure: Ridge Road, Town of Veteran
Contact: Vincent Azzarelli, Chemung County Public Information Director @ 737-2837
The Department of Public Works announces the short-term closure of CR05 - Ridge Road in the Town of Veteran, from Church Hill Road to the southern intersection of Acker Road. This work, which will accommodate the safe installation of a deep culvert pipe underneath the roadway, is scheduled to occur Monday, June 14, through Wednesday, June 16. A signed detour will be in place, utilizing sections of Church Hill Road and Middle Road. Variable Message Signs will be in place at each end of the detour to provide additional notice to motorists. Please see the included detour map.
We ask motorists to plan accordingly, allowing extra time to use the detour. Local traffic needing access to their driveways will be able to use each side of the closed section of Ridge Road.
Work schedules are dependent on weather and equipment availability. In the event of a delay, we will announce any changes on the Variable Message Signs.
Thank you for your continued patience as we continue to improve Ridge Road. Please contact the Department of Public Works at (607) 739-3896 if you have any questions.
