ILION – The Otsego Street bridge crossing Steele Creek in Ilion is currently closed due to flooding.

Ice jams in Steele Creek have caused the water to crest over on Ostego Street/Route 51. Avoid that area if you're traveling through Ilion today.

According to state Department of Transportation officials, Herkimer County 911 called to report a large amount of water going into the roadway on Otsego Street near Old Forge Road as well.

Central Valley Academy officials say that some buses may need to be rerouted through that area, but otherwise the bridge closing and flooding is not affecting the school as of now.
