The State Department of Transportation is announcing road closures that may affect you if you are traveling through the Utica area.

The Route 12 south ramp to State Street along with the State Street ramp from Oriskany Street will be closed to traffic Friday while crews install steel beams over Oriskany Street as part of the North-South Arterial Project.

Drivers heading east on Oriskany Street wanting to access Route 12 north will be directed to the 12 North access ramp in North Utica near North Utica Shopping Center.

Signed detours are in place and the DOT expects the work to be done by the end of the day.
