UTICA, N.Y. -- Due to Route 8 bridge work, part of the Arterial under the bridge will be closed to traffic in both directions overnight next week.
The New York Department of Transportation will begin demolition work on the bridge starting Monday. The Arterial will close from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The ramp from Route 840 eastbound to Route 5/8/12 northbound will also be closed to traffic during the demolition.
Drivers should take caution when driving through that area, and look out for detour signs.
