Under a $1.8 million construction contract, Chemung Contracting Corp. will convert the existing two-way stop intersection to a single-lane roundabout at the intersection of Route 20 (Constitution Highway) and Route 231 (Blue Ridge Turnpike) in Orange County.
Beginning on Monday, March 23, 2020, the speed limit will be reduced to 35 mph within the construction limits. Motorists should follow posted construction signs and obey directions from flaggers. Initial project tasks will include the installation of environmental controls and construction signage.
During construction, drivers should expect extra travel time, lane shifts, and flagging operations on weekdays from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Construction is expected to be complete by December 7, 2020.
