The New York State Department of Transportation has issued a Travel Advisory for motorists in Utica on Tuesday.

From 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., the Lafayette Street bridge between State and Varick Streets will be closed to traffic due to bridge work being done on the new Lafayette Street bridge.

The DOT says signed detours will be used to advise motorists of the street closure and to direct traffic to the appropriate detour route.
