Central NY Roadways You May Want To Avoid
As I drove in this morning I was thinking about the roundabout being built at Oneida & Genesee Streets in Utica and then, thump goes my car on the torn up roadway at the Edic Road exit off the 790. My goodness, there is plenty of road work happening in Central NY. For example, the Route 5S eastbound bridge over Pitcher Street is being worked on. Motorists will encounter a shoulder closure and shortened exit ramp at the Turner Street exit.
In the town of Forestport, watch out for Route 28 reconstruction between Pit Four Road and Tamarack Road. Ditching, drainage and miscellaneous construction operations continue throughout the project. Motorists may encounter a lane closure controlled by flaggers and minor delays. Proceed with caution.
In the village of Earlville there is Route 12B water main replacement. Motorists may encounter intermittent one-way alternating traffic controlled by flaggers within the village. Minor delays.
If your destination is in the village of Dolgeville there is Route 167 pedestrian enhancements being done between Route 29 and Cramer Lane. Motorists will encounter intermittent, one-way alternating traffic controlled by flaggers and minor delays due to the ingress and egress of construction vehicles.
But wait, there’s more. In the town of Fairfield, look out for Route 170 reconstruction work between Route 29 and Route 170A. Motorists will encounter one-way alternating traffic controlled by flaggers. Expect minor delays. Drive with caution through the work zone.
And in Frankfort, Route 171 between Furnace Road and Brice Road is closed until further notice, due to storm damage.
In German Flatts, Route 168 over Fulmer Creek bridge is undergoing deck repairs. Motorists will encounter one-way alternating traffic controlled by a temporary traffic signal. Minor delays.
And finally, in the town of Schuyler, Route 5 over Sterling Creek bridge there is deck repairs. Motorists will encounter one-way alternating traffic controlled by a temporary traffic signal with minor delays.
Thank you to NYSDOT for the info, drive safely.
