By WKTV News

HERKIMER, N.Y. (WKTV) - The New York State Department of Transportation will be rehabilitating the bridge deck on South Washington Street over the Erie Canal in the Village of Herkimer.

The structure is located one mile east of the Route 5S and Route 28 intersection in the village and construction is scheduled to be completed by November 30, 2012.

In order to complete the work, the bridge will be closed and an off site signed detour will direct traffic to Route 28 and Route 5. The detour will be in effect starting Thursday, July 26, 2012 and is expected to be in place for roughly three months.

Motorists are urged to use caution while traveling through the work zone and to pay particular attention to all traffic control devices.

The project was awarded to Tioga Construction Company Inc of Herkimer.
