Seward: Chobani needs DOT study

(Continued)

He said he also wants the officials to address traffic problems that have cropped up in nearby South Edmeston, a hamlet in Otsego County. Some residents there have told The Daily Star that truck drivers have indicated their GPS directional devices have led them to take smaller county roads even though they generally prefer to keep their rigs on state thoroughfares for as much as possible.

Seward said state police have already increased their presence on State Route “8, a development he called “a great start.”

“Additionally, I am respectfully requesting a full DOT study to review traffic patterns, pinpoint trouble spots and develop a measured response plan that will ensure the safety of all motorists,” the senator said.
