The town's annual road resurfacing program hit the streets this week.
The project, expected to last about two weeks, will cause lane closures in work zones. Drivers should expect delays, officials said.
Roadway milling will begin Wednesday on Richmondville Avenue at Oak Street and proceed south to Main Street. Paving operations are scheduled to begin there Friday and will follow the course of milled roads.
Other roads to be milled and paved over the course of the project will be Woods Grove Road, Burr Road, Indian Hill Road, Ferry Lane and West End Avenue, according to Public Works Director Stephen Daniels.
Work will take place weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Alternating one-way traffic will be in effect during the work day, after which affected roads will be opened for regular two-way traffic.
Raised structures will be in travel lanes while work is taking place, and marked by cones, barrels, paint or drums.
Traffic traveling through the work zones should anticipate delays, officials say. Drivers should follow instructions from traffic-control personnel and police at the work sites.
