NEW HARTFORD – The state Department of Transportation has issued a travel advisory for the village of New Hartford over the next several days.
Beginning at 6 p.m. Friday until Tuesday, Aug. 21, the State Route 8 bridge over Genesee Street, and Genesee Street between Campion Road and Brookline Drive, will be closed to traffic. DOT officials say the closure is to allow for demolition and installation of the new bridge deck.

DOT officials say signs will be in place in that area to let drivers know about the closure and to direct them to the appropriate detour routes.
The bridge and that section of Genesee Street are expected to reopen at 6 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 21.
Drivers are also being reminded that fines are doubled for speeding through a work zone.
