UTICA – Drivers who use the Route 5/8/12 Arterial in Utica could experience traffic delays for the next several days.

Starting Thursday morning and running through April 14, State Department of Transportation crews will demolish the deck of the Burrstone Road bridge which passes over the Arterial. Drivers should expect to encounter lane closures in both directions between the Oswego Street and French Road exits. These closures will take place between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.

The DOT warns drivers to allow for extra travel time as delays are expected - especially during peak travel times. The DOT also reminds drivers to reduce speed to keep road crews safe while they work. Fines are doubled for speeding violations in a work zone.
