Construction on the rise, officials to enforce "Move Over" laws

The summertime season is finally here to stay. With it comes the hassle of roadway construction. Back in April, New York State's Department of Transportation (DOT) announced their significant redesign plans concerning the areas surrounding Interstates 81 and 690.

It is expected to take place over the course of the next five years, with developments beginning as soon as this summer. Drivers should take caution and expect to see an increase in various work zones throughout the central area.
