____________________________________________________________________________________________

The New York State Department of Transportation is preparing a $5 million capital project to repair 17 bridges, both eastbound and westbound, along the Route 104 corridor between the Bay Bridge and Salt Road in the Town of Webster. Construction for this project is currently expected to begin in the summer of 2015 and take two construction seasons to complete.

 

This preventive maintenance project is designed to improve the riding surface and maintain a state of good repair. The project involves the milling and repairing certain bridge decks, replacement of many bridge joints, repair of some concrete fascia overhangs, and the reconstruction and addition of some sidewalk ramps at Bay and Five Mile Line Roads over Route 104 to meet current ADA standards.

 

Construction will be scheduled to minimize delays. At least one lane of traffic in each direction on Route 104 will remain open at all times. Some long term lane closures are anticipated on the bridges over Route 250, Phillips Road, and Salt Road. Some weekend work is anticipated.

 

Construction activities will cease during the weekends of Memorial Day, the Webster Soccer Tournament (June 20 & 21), 4th of July and Labor Day. Lane closures will remain in place as needed.

Press Release

December 12, 2014

           

Crime Victim Notification System Enhanced

 

A texting option has been added to the Crime Victim Notification System as a key improvement to the existing notification system.

 

The New York Sheriffs’ Victim Hotline (VINE) has enabled crime victims to receive a text message notification in the event of any change in the custody status of an offender incarcerated in a county correctional facility in New York.

 

VINE allows crime victims to learn the custody status of an offender, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by telephone or online. This new notification option, “SMS Text Messaging Notification,” adds text messaging to the existing notification options. The additional outbound notification method will be in Spanish and English.

 

Sheriff Virts states, “Crime victims need and want timely and accurate offender information to ensure your personal safety and that of your loved ones. The addition of texting empowers victims and I encourage you to embrace this new technology”.

 

In 2014, almost 2.8 million crime victims searched the VINE Database, using either the toll free number (1-888-VINE-4-NY), the VINEMobile app, the Sheriffs Mobile Patrol App (both available for IPhone and Android), or the website (VineLink.com). Also in 2014, over 100,000 crime victims received notification of a change in their offender’s status either by phone or email. It is anticipated that the addition of the text messaging option will result in even more crime victims receiving timely notification of vital offender information. Sheriff Virts welcomes this new feature as the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office continues to seek ways to better serve your public safety needs.
