The plan of Southport, New York to complete roadwork so as to avoid collisions and other accidents in three accident-prone locations along Route 328 are under way, despite some people’s hesitation.
A total of 13 accidents have already occurred at the Pine City exit at Southport, one of which resulted in one person’s death.
The New York State Department of Transportation has started working on how to imrpove the Route 328 Corridor to the Pennsylvania State line to Route 14. However, Chemung County Sheriff Christopher Moss said the proprietors of Shepherd’s Food Market are anxious that customers won’t be able to easily access their store from the Pine City exit.
Moss said townspeople, civil society, and various stakeholders were invited to attend the meeting that took place on Tuesday, October 1 at around 6:15 p.m. at the Pine City Fire Company to address these issues.
