The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the New York State Department of Transportation (DOT) are beginning work to repair a 2.9-mile stretch of NYS Route 990V in the Town of Gilboa.
The $740,000 project will be funded by DEP and the work will be performed by DOT.
New York City is responsible for maintaining that portion of Route 990V under terms of the 1997 Watershed Memorandum of Agreement.
The repair to Route 990V will stretch from its intersection with Route 30 to its intersection with County Route 39, passing along the Gilboa Dam Rehabilitation Project, Gilboa town hall, and the Gilboa-Conesville Central School building.
DEP had previously agreed to fund these interim repairs to ensure Route 990V was in safe condition in light of increased truck traffic from the dam reconstruction project.
The current roadwork is expected to take three weeks to complete.
Local motorists should use extra care when driving along Route 990V during that time, as the road will be subject to temporary lane closures.
