Arguments delay needed road repairs

Aug 4, 2012

An antagonistic exchange of words continues to stall repair work to Southern Tier roadways.

Officials from the Seneca Nation of Indians and New York State are blaming each other for the delay in construction along Interstate 86 and Routes 5 and 20. The state claims that the Senecas are being obstructionist, lobbying for additional monies to be paid to them. The Seneca's contend that the state is avoiding construction fees that the Nation believes they are due.

There is no word as to whether or not construction will begin on Monday.
