Route 81 Project (2018)

Barrett Paving – New York North

In the Summer of 2018, work continued on the Route 81 & Vendor Placed Paving project. The project started on the U.S. mainland Rt. I81, crossing the Thousand Island Bridge, and continuing across Wellesley Island to the Canadian Border. The project included 40 lane miles of paving supervised by Michael Friedline and his dedicated team. It also comprised over 14 miles of guiderail replacement along with other various items of work.

This project tied in with the Route 12 Vendor Placed Paving project. Both of which involved very heavy summer traffic and were a challenge to complete during the Thousand Island tourist season.

The project successfully completed in September 2018.
