Bill Williams Is reporting for Columbia-Greene Media that motorists using Fairview Avenue in Greenport next week may encounter delays and backups as scheduled paving of the roadway takes place. The work will take place in the area of Fairview between Livingston Parkway and the Shop Rite Plaza. That portion of the road was originally scheduled to be paved on June 1 and 2, but it was postponed until June 6, because of bad weather. Message boards located along Fairview indicate the work will be done between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. The construction began on May 25, and large backups were reported in both directions as crews from the New York State Department of Transportation began tearing up and removing the old pavement. Dozens of huge potholes developed over the winter along a stretch of Fairview that were difficult to avoid and impossible to see in the dark. DOT workers filled many of the potholes temporarily when spring arrived, but a more permanent solution was needed. While the work is ongoing, Fairview Avenue will be reduced to a single lane with alternating traffic controlled by flaggers. Read the full story at HudsonValley360 [dot] com.
