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.

There were more than 400 accidents in road and bridge construction work zones last year in New York state, five of them fatal. The state is hoping to pare down that number this year by asking motorists to slow down in work zones.
