While summer is winding down, it is still is a very busy construction season in New York state. Transportation officials want drivers to be aware of any construction delays that could come their way.

The budget for fixing New York State roads and bridges has almost doubled this year, thanks to the transportation portion of the New York Works program.  The $1.2 billion program will repair roads and bridges, but it is also intended to function as a jobs and economic development engine.
