Hopefully all of your travels so far this holiday season have gone smoothly. It feels like everywhere you turn there is some kind of road work being done. I sure feel for the people whose job it is to work outside in the winter but sometimes that is the best time to reconstruct a road.

I don't know if winter is the reason for the decision to work on a Route 17 off-ramp in Sullivan County but I would think there might be less traffic this time of year. The New State Department of Transportations (NYS DOT) has issued a road closure warning for exit 105 on Route 17 until next spring.

They expect to have the work completed in early 2023.
