The New York State Department of Transportation is undertaking a highway paving project this summer to improve the condition of I-490 in the towns of Bergen, Riga, and Chili. A $1.4 million pavement preservation project along the 6.6 mile section of I-490 between exits two (Route 33 & 33A) and four (Route 259 Union Street) is slated to begin the week of August 18th, weather permitting.
This project was accelerated to address the severe damage caused by last winter's extreme conditions. The project entails the removal of the top three inches of pavement and replacement with a fresh layer of asphalt in the two mile section that is most deteriorated and was closed last winter, as well as the removal and replacement of the top 1" of pavement in the remaining areas between exits two and four.
This paving work is expected to last approximately two months, pending favorable weather and schedule. Traffic will be maintained with the use of single lane closures. Work will likely begin in the right hand lane on the westbound side of the highway. Access to ramps will be maintained.
