LAKE PLACID - Crews will begin paving about 12 miles of state Route 86 between Lake Placid and Wilmington on Monday, according to the state Department of Transportation.
The paving is the second phase of the project. One lane will be closed, with flaggers directing traffic. DOT said in a press release that motorists should expect moderate to significant travel delays and should seek alternate routes when possible.
The first phase of the project involved recycling the existing asphalt. It caused minimal traffic delays, DOT said.
Work is expected to be completed by mid-September.
Motorists are reminded that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. In accordance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual's driver's license.
