Effective immediately (August 13th), access to Helendale Road in Irondequoit between Empire Boulevard and Norton Street will be restricted to Local Traffic Only. The Town is commencing work this morning to repair a large storm water main that has compromised the integrity of the road between Druid Hill Park and Lucrest Drive. Helendale Rd will be closed between Druid Hill and Lucrest.

Motorists should use detoured routes on Pardee Road or Culver Road.

The scope of work on Helendale Rd involves replacing a juncture located 25 feet underground. Again, this was not planned infrastructure work, and we understand it comes at a time when construction work being performed by New York State on Empire Boulevard is already causing some interruption of traffic patterns.

The expected duration of work on Heledale is at least three to four weeks.

Our Department of Public Works has already begun notifying nearby residents about this matter.
