A traffic and travel advisory is in effect for Utica, New York.

For approximately the next two weeks Route 5, 8, and 12 northbound (the "Arterial") will be reduced to one lane of traffic  between Noyes and Warren Street.

According to a written release from James Piccola of the New York State Department of Transportation the closure of one lane is to permit work to take place on the new center median barrier wall.

Road work and construction signs are posted.  Drivers are advised to use extra caution in the area and to be alert.
