New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) today announced Route 5&20 in the town of Hopewell, Ontario County, is reopening later today after being closed since April 22 while an aging and deteriorated culvert was replaced.
An incentive clause was written into the contract to keep the highway closure to a minimum. The road was closed for 66 days, which was within the contract requirements.
The culvert is located just east of Route 247. A detour was posted.
