Beginning this Wednesday at 9 p.m. the Route 5-8-12 Arterial northbound lanes will be closed between Burrstone Road and Court Street.

Crews will be pouring a bridge deck for the Oriskany Street bridge overnight and traffic will have to be diverted.

DOT spokesman Jim Piccola joined First News With Keeler in the Morning on WIBX and said detours will be in place to get you around the city if you need to use the Arterial during construction hours.

"We do have what we call a detour E," Piccola said. "It will take them onto Burrstone Road, over to Champlin Ave, down to Oriskany Street and then back on to Route 12."

The Route 12 south ramp to State Street will also be closed to traffic as part of this construction.

Piccola says crews are hoping to have the northbound lanes re-opened by 6 a.m. Thursday morning.
