VER­NON, N.Y. >> The New York State Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion is ad­vis­ing mo­torists to be aware of paving work sched­uled to start this week on Route 31 in the town of Ver­non.

Weather per­mit­ting, paving will be­gin on Tues­day, Oct. 9 be­tween Route 5 and Young’s Road. The work is sched­uled from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Fri­day, Oct. 12.

Flag­gers will pro­vide traf­fic con­trol dur­ing the work and mo­torists will en­counter al­ter­nat­ing lane clo­sures. Mi­nor de­lays should be ex­pected.

The NYSDOT re­minds mo­torists to drive care­fully in work zones, for their own safety and

the safety of work­ers.

NYSDOT and the Gov- er­nor’s Traf f ic Safety Com­mit­tee re­cently un­veiled a new pub­lic ser­vice an­nounce­ment and so­cial me­dia cam­paign fo­cused on the im­por­tance of re­spect­ing f lag- ging per­son­nel.

This year’s work zone safety cam­paign, “Flag­gers have fam­i­lies too,” is de­signed to re­mind mo­torists that flag­ging per­son­nel are not at­tempt- ing to dis­rupt traf­fic — they are sim­ply do­ing their jobs and want to get home safely at the end of each work day.

Mo­torists are re­minded that fines are dou­bled for speed­ing in a work zone. In ac­cor­dance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, con­vic­tions of two or more speed­ing vi­o­la­tions in a work zone could re­sult in the sus­pen­sion of an in­di­vid­ual’s driver’s li­cense.
