There is going to be a few slow spots on the road next week. The trouble spots are in Utica, Kirkland, New Hartford, and Clinton.

French Road between Burrstone Road and Chenango Road will have paving work done that will reduce traffic to one lane in each direction. Extensive delays will be encountered. May we suggest you find alternate routes.

Also, near the Village of Clinton and the Towns of Kirkland and New Hartford, Route 12B between Robinson Road, Clinton and Hara Crescent will also have paving operations that you may want to avoid. One-way alternating traffic will be controlled by flaggers. Extensive delays will be encountered. We suggest you take a different route.

There are a few more trouble spots to let you know about. In Deerfield, the Miller Road Bridge over Routes 8 and 12 will remain closed until Labor Day due to bridge deck replacement. A signed detour is in place directing traffic to Trenton Road and Route 8.

In the towns of Lee & Annsville, Route 69 between Rome and Taberg will have paving work to begin sometime this week. One-way alternating traffic will be controlled by flaggers so expect minor delays.

And finally in the towns of Marcy & Whitestown, Mohawk/Clinton Street between Route 69 and River Road will be experiencing miscellaneous construction activities. One-way alternating traffic will be controlled by flaggers so you'll encounter minor delays.

I'm sure we've missed a few spots, well anyway, drive safely!
