Road Condition Update: Most Roads Open, Drivers Still Advised to Take Care

Monday, June 15, 2015

Officials report that nearly all roads in southern Tompkins County have reopened following yesterday’s flash flooding that hit hard in the Towns of Newfield and Danby.  Motorists, however, are still advised to drive carefully because of road damage—in places there are parts of the pavement missing and shoulders are gone in some areas.

All roads in Tompkins County are open, with exception of the following roads in the Town of Newfield: 

  • Bower Road between Shaffer Road and VanBuskirk Road (closure expected to last weeks,  if not months)
  • Burge Hill Road from Route 13 to the end
  • Brown Road between Route 34/96 to Bald Hill Road
  • A small section of VanBuskirk Road where it intersects with Bower Road
     
  • Routes 34/96 at Brown Road also remain closed because of severe road damage.

Work continues to clear roads of debris and make repairs.  Drivers are urged to travel carefully, be watchful of road conditions, and reduce their speeds.
