The weather forecast has temperatures in the 50s this week so you can expect to see road work crews throughout Central NY. In Oneida County there are ongoing projects in New Hartford, Utica, Rome, Vernon, Whitesboro and Yorkville.

If you’re traveling through Rome expect continued bridge closures due to long-term rehabilitation. The following bridges will remain closed through the end of the year:
• Route 26 north bridge over Route 365 west
• Route 49/69 bridge over Route 365 west
• Route 49/69 bridge over Route 26 north.
Signs and variable message boards are in place to advise you of the detour routes.

In West Utica between Lafayette Street and Sunset Ave the building demolitions continue west of the North-South Arterial, along Fay Street as part of the arterial expansion project. Also, the I-790 southbound bridge will be under repair over the Barge Canal and progressing south toward the Oriskany Blvd exit. You will encounter a lane closure. You’ll have to slow down to 45 mph on Mulaney Road thru the work zone.

On Route 5 (Seneca Turnpike) there will be traffic signal work between Oakdale Ave and Alexandria Road. Motorists will encounter intermittent lane closures controlled by flaggers. Expect minor delays.

In the villages of Whitesboro and Yorkville the Route 69 traffic signal work will continues on Clinton Street in Whitesboro. And the Route 5A traffic signal work in Yorkville at the Main Street and Whitesboro Street intersections also continues. Expect to encounter intermittent lane closures controlled by flaggers.

And finally in the village of New Hartford the Route 8 bridge maintenance work continues slowing traffic in both lanes. Mill Street will remain open to businesses and patrons, only the ramp is closed.

That’s it for now. Spring is here and the Department of Transportation hopes these improvements will make your travels easier.
