Lewis County, NY- North Country drivers have been dealing with the inconvenience of detours around a portion of Route 812 just outside of Lowville and the latest updates from officials indicate things aren’t going to change anytime soon.

As reported in April, workers have been in the process of replacing a culvert, located just north of the intersection with Ridge Road.

With relentless rain showers, the Black River has remained at a very high level and authorities told reporters from WWNY-TV that crews have been put on standby for now until the river goes back down.

Officials say as long as the weather cooperates, workers should be able to finish the project and have the roadway re-opened in about a month.
