State will finish 14A road work in June

YATES COUNTY—If you’ve driven on Route 14A south of Penn Yan or on 54A between Penn Yan and Branchport, you too have noticed the road work.
Tim Alimossi, New York State Department of Transportation resident engineer in Watkins Glen, explained those are the two main projects currently underway in the area.  Both are also funded by American Recovery and Reinvestment Act stimulus funds.  The Route 14A project started most recently, Monday, May 17.
Alimossi explained the work includes installing under-drain pipes under the shoulder of the road.  He said asphalt on the village’s portion of the road will be milled down and covered with binder and a top.  He added guardrails will be installed in places along 14A where they are needed.
Alimossi said the project was expected to cost around $2 million, but the winning bid from A.L. Blades came in under that at $1,887,756.99.  He added that work is expected to be completed some time in June.
The other big project is repaving 13.28 lane miles of Route 54A, between Penn Yan and Branchport, and replacement of one large culvert.  Work started March 23, also by A.L. Blades.  The project cost is $5,798,100.  Alimossi said work is expected to last until October.
Both projects have at some point closed off traffic down to one lane.  Work on Route 14A closes off one lane of traffic to install the new under-drain pipes.
