State plans Route 230 repaving, Tyrone bridge work

    TYRONE, WAYNE—Even though the summer road work season has come to an end, some local projects are just getting started.  One project is in Wayne and another is in Tyrone.
    In both, the New York State Department of Transportation is doing road improvements.  Tim Alimosy, DOT regional engineer, said Route 230 was one big project.  He explained the state wants to pave it, starting from the Route 54 intersection near Keuka Lake and going all the way to the Route 14A intersection in Dundee.  However, he explained this is planned to take three years in stages.
    Alimosy said the first work should be this month; he added that by November no one will be producing asphalt any more.  The first stage would go as far as Wayne.  After that, Alimosy said the repaving would restart again next year and hopefully end in 2013.
He explained the money to fund the project comes from a state grant.  He added that they are waiting for the funds to start the work.  Alimosy said the state will mill out the old paving and do any repairs that might be needed on the road.  He said they would then repave Route 230.
    The other big project is the Route 226 bridge replacement over Tobehanna Creek.  The bridge is currently closed for the work.  Alimosy said northbound traffic on Route 226 is directed up Route 23A, onto Route 23, and then back to 226.  One of the goals of the project was to improve the angle at which Route 23A stops at 226.  Alimosy explained the intersection was widened and Route 23A is now closer to a 90 degree angle when connecting to 226.  Previously, the road merged into 226 on a curve.  Construction is expected to be completed in the summer of 2012.
    Alimosy added that the state has agreed to handle plowing on the roads involved in the bridge replacement.
