New roundabout in Victor means Route 96 detour is finally over

Detour days are finally over in Victor.

The busy stretch of State Route 96, which had been closed since mid-July reopened to traffic, as a roundabout was completed at the Lynaugh Road intersection.


It was a $2.8 million project, and was supposed to be completed before Labor Day. However, it fell behind schedule due to engineering issues.

A second deadline of September 14th was set, but that wasn’t reached either.

The state DOT says that construction crews remains on-scene, so motorists should use caution. It’s unclear at this time how much more money the overrun cost taxpayers.
