Roadwork will last all summer in Yates County
Jerusalem, N.Y. -- A state of emergency was still in effect for Yates County Monday after flooding damaged roads and homes in the area, including the Town of Jerusalem.
Town officials said cleanup and repairs throughout the county will cost more than $1 million and will require months of labor.
Five roads in Jerusalem were still partially closed, and the county has put schedule projects on hold while it works to fix the highly traveled roads before Memorial Day weekend.
The town and county were urging people to drive with caution and pay attention to cones and barrels. They told 13WHAM News drivers should execute patience because repairs will not be done overnight.
"It will easily take us all summer long and into the fall before we're done," said Rob Martin Jerusalem highway superintendent.
