Expect arterial to be one lane for a few weeks

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - Work to widen the north-south arterial has kicked into high gear, which brings the thoroughfare to one lane during certain times of the day.

But the New York State Department of Transportation is working to minimize that inconvenience.

"What was built into the project were these time constraints, where we could only work on the arterial from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.," said James Piccola of the NYSDOT. "That's because we want the traveling public to be able to get to work and at night get home to where they have to go."

The arterial will be down to one lane during the day for a few weeks. The end date of the entire project has been pushed back a bit to 2017.
