A traffic advisory will be in effect for the Utica and Marcy area for next week.

Beginning at 9:00am on Monday, October 26, 2015 State Route 49 Westbound is expected to be closed for four miles from Leland Avenue to Cavanaugh Road.  The closures will last until approximately 12:00noon.

Jim Piccola of the New York State Department of Transportation says affected traffic will be detoured onto a parallel route, River Road westbound.

The closures are being made to permit a veterans' memorial walk and sign dedication.

Veterans who are participating in the walk and ceremony will be taken by bus to a point that is about one mile from the ceremony venue.  They will then walk to the ceremony where a sign honoring Vietnam veterans will be dedicated.

WIBX will cover the dedication ceremony on October 26, 2015.
