TRAFFIC ALERT: State Route 54A delays expected through mid-fall in Urbana

  • / Updated:
  • Staff Report 

Starting today drivers going through Urbana on State Route 54A should expect delays until mid-fall. The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) is reducing traffic to one lane from County Road 76 to just north of Urbana Road. Temporary traffic lights will help cars take turns sharing the open lane. The work is expected to wrap up by mid-October, but bad weather might change the timeline.


The reason for the lane closure is a big road improvement project on Route 54A. This project, costing $12.2 million, will put in new drainage systems and make other improvements to help the road handle heavy rain better and stop flooding. The whole project should be done by summer 2025, making travel near Keuka Lake smoother and safer in the future.

NYSDOT is telling people who usually drive this way to find different routes to avoid getting stuck in traffic. They also remind everyone that speeding in a work zone can cost you double the normal fines, and if you do it too much, you could lose your driver’s license.
