Ontario County will be performing road improvements on County Road 8 for the 2023 and 2024 construction seasons. The projects will consist of culvert replacements, roadway resurfacing and guiderail installation. The work scheduled for 2023 will include the replacement of eight culverts at various locations along the roadway, whereas the highway resurfacing and guiderail installation is scheduled for 2024.
A culvert located just north of NY 96 to be replaced during the 2023 construction season will require the closure of County Road 8 to ensure the safety of the travelling public and construction crews. We anticipate the duration of the road closure will be approximately four weeks with traffic being detoured in the following manner:
At all other times, the road will remain open to through traffic (1-lane minimum) during the construction of both projects.
We plan to publicly bid the construction contracts separately in the fall/winter of 2022 and 2023. Work for the 2023 construction season will be completed by the fall of 2023, whereas work for the 2024 construction season will be completed during the summer of 2024.
A public information meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, November 29, 2022, from 7:00-8:00 pm at the Farmington Town Hall, located at 1000 County Road 8, Farmington, NY 14425. County staff will give a brief presentation explaining the projects and address any questions at the meeting.
