The Road Work Season In Central NY Is Coming To An End
If you travel up route 5 through North Utica heading to Herkimer and beyond, you'll have to stop again at the Burger King as the full function traffic light has returned. In other traffic news, in Whitesboro along Route 69, the traffic signal work at the Whitestown Plaza / Whitesboro Middle School entrance will continue for just a bit longer. You'll encounter sporadic, short-term lane closures controlled by flaggers.
In Ilion along Route 51 (Otsego Street) between 1st Street and Old Forge Road there are just a few more miscellaneous construction activities going on with intermittent lane closures controlled by flaggers. No traffic delays are expected.
If you travel towards Albany, in the city of Amsterdam, the Route 30 south ramp to Route 5 west, along with multiple intersections on Route 30 North, Market Street, will have sporadic lane closures. Flaggers will be utilized to control one-way alternating traffic as needed.
An finally in Hamilton County, in the town of Wells along Route 8, expect lane closures between the Route 30 intersection and Warren County line. This is because of guide rail installations. You will encounter one-way alternating traffic controlled by flaggers and minimal delays.
That's it for this year, we hope these improvements make your travels easier and drive carefully!
