Oriskany Street east in Utica between Schuyler and Cornelia Streets will be closed tonight.

In addition, Oriskany Street west will be reduced to one lane.

The State Department of Transportation says the road closure and lane reduction will be in effect from 6:00 Thursday night to 6:00 Friday morning for removal of a concrete pier.

Motorists traveling east on Oriskany Street will be directed to use the State Street ramp to get back onto Orsikany Street.
