EVANS MILLS — The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) will host a public information meeting about a proposed project to address safety concerns at the US Route 11 and State Route 26 intersection in the Town of LeRay, Jefferson County. The meeting will be held Thursday, May 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Town of LeRay Town Offices, 8650 LeRay Street, Evans Mills, NY 13637.

The Department is presenting design alternatives for the project, which proposes to improve traffic safety and ease congestion at the intersection of US Route 11 and State Route 26 in Evans Mills.  The proposed project would provide additional turning lanes and slip ramps at the intersection. It is anticipated that traffic will be maintained on site during construction. The $4.2 million project is expected to begin and be completed in the summer of 2019.

The purpose of this meeting is to obtain comments on the proposed project from individuals, groups, officials and local agencies. The Department is specifically soliciting comments on the development of alternates for the project, the proposed traffic control plan and comments on the project’s social, economic and environmental effects.
