The temporary ramp closure is to facilitate paving operations on the ramp.


The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) Utica Regional Office says construction traffic signs and variable message signs (V.M.S.) will be in place to notify drivers of the closure and indicate detours where applicable.

Drivers are advised to slow down and use extra caution in the area.  The NYSDOT says fines are doubled for speeding in work zones.  Convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of a person's driver license.
