Improvements to the terminus of Route 531 at Washington Street (Route 36)
New York State reports that the project to improve the terminus of Route 531 at Washington Street (Route 36) is progressing. The project includes improvements along Route 31 from Route 36 to Salmon Creek Road. Route 531 will tie directly into Route 31 with an improved at-grade signalized intersection.
Construction will be ongoing for two years. The proposed work for each year is as follows:
2017: The majority of the work will be at the interchange area of Route 531 and Route 36. Route 531 and Route 31 will remain open to traffic; however, Route 36 will be closed between Colby Street and Route 531. A detour using Colby Street will be utilized for the Route 36 thru-traffic.
2018: The majority of the work will be along Route 31. Route 31 from Salmon Creek Road to Route 36 will be reduced to one lane, eastbound only, from mid-May to the end of August to provide space to reconstruct Route 31. A Route 31 westbound detour will direct drivers to Manitou Road north to Route 104 west to Route 260 south. Once a schedule from the contractor is received, NYS will provide more information on the closure dates. View more information
