OLEAN, NY – The City of Olean Department of Public Works will begin road work on West State Street at the intersection of Independence Avenue Tuesday.

The work will involve re-striping the road and overhead sign installation, according to a press release from the department. The westbound curb lane will be marked as 'right-turn-only' and the center westbound lane will be a 'straight-only.' Flaggers will direct traffic as the work progresses.

The work is expected to cause traffic congestion and delays for most of the day and motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes and exercise caution when traveling through the intersection.
