The NYS Transportation Department says construction is scheduled to begin on Wednesday on a $5 million project to improve the condition of Route 441 in Brighton and Penfield.
It involves work on the concrete pavement on 441 from Linden Oaks Drive to Old Penfield Road. During construction, each of the highway's four lanes will be closed, one at a time for approximately three weeks each, for a total of three months.
Each of the ramps at Route 153 will be closed for up to two weeks and a detour will be posted. The Linden Avenue intersection will be closed in one direction at a time for up to four weekends from Friday evening through Monday morning.
Truck and emergency access to the neighborhood north of Route 441 will be provided at another point on Route 441. Detours for weekend closures will be posted.
The project is scheduled to be completed this fall. Officials say this section of Route 441, which was built in 1973, has been maintained, but never rehabilitated.
