Gearing up

Traffic lights have been erected in the construction work zone for the box culvert replacement on State Route 8 in the Village of Speculator, next to Lake Pleasant Library. Traffic will be restricted to alternating single lanes during construction and the signals and lane restrictions will remain in place until the project is done. It is scheduled to start April 15 and end by mid-June, although materials were being delivered and preparation work on water diversion was started Monday.
