Are you hitting the road this weekend? We thought we'd help you get there quicker by providing you with the details on some trouble spots. More road work is expected that we'd like to tell you about as you crank up the AC this weekend.

In Oneida County, look out for this trouble spot on Route 5 between Route 46 and Seneca Street. The sidewalk drainage and signal work is still goin on. Work will take place off the roadway. Minor delays may be encountered due to an occasional lane closure. In North Utica, where I travel home everyday, the I-790 roadwork continues between Leland Ave and River Road. Motorists will encounter a lane and shoulder closure westbound thru Monday followed by a lane and shoulder closure eastbound on Tuesday, due to maintenance work. Several trucks and workers will be working in the area. Please drive with caution. Also the I-790 eastbound lane between Edic Road and Leland Ave will be troublesome.  Motorists will encounter a lane closure due to crack sealing operations.

Hope this helps plan your route, drive safely this work escape weekend!
