Two days worth of road work is set to begin at 9 a.m. Friday on the westbound section of Genesee Street, between Transit Road and Calla Way in Cheektowaga, according to the state Department of Transportation.
Westbound Genesee will be reduced to one lane while the work is being done. However, the work could be delayed in the event of inclement weather, transportation department officials added.
Motorists who travel this route are being advised to prepare for delays and additional travel time. They also are reminded to exercise patience and to show respect to flagging personnel who direct traffic in work zones.
Recently, DOT and the Governor's Traffic Safety Committee unveiled a new public service announcement and social media campaign to that effect.
