More lighting to come in the Dickinson Town Roundabout area
Drivers traveling on Route 11 in the town of Dickinson can expect things to improve in the area of the two recently opened roundabouts.
Construction crews continue to work near the Interstate 81 interchange between Old Front and Bevier streets, just north of the city of Binghamton.
The first of two new roundabouts opened at the end of June. The second became operational in early August, before the start of Spiedie Fest and the Balloon Rally at Otsiningo Park.
Some motorists who have used the roundabouts at night have said that navigating the roundabouts can be difficult in dark and rainy conditions.
A spokesperson for the Department of Transport said that although many lights have been installed in the area, some are not yet operational.
Over the next few weeks, workers will complete a footpath and finish landscaping throughout the work area.
Signals and pedestrian crossings on rue Bevier need to be improved. Additional signage will be installed as part of the improvement plan.
The project is expected to be substantially complete by the end of next month. Operations in the work area should be completed by the end of the year.
