Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - Construction projects are beginning to pop up across Central New York and one just northwest of the city of Syracuse has viewers wondering what’s going on.
Norm from Lakeland travels State Fair Boulevard frequently. He took notice when work began on the bridge over Nine Mile Creek about a month ago.
According to Onondaga County Department of Transportation Commissioner Brian Donnelly, his crew is re-constructing the concrete surface of the structure. The bridge was built in the 1970s and was nearing the end of its lifespan. An asphalt overlay helped to put off any major work several years ago, but that was just a temporary fix.
Donnelly says the bridge is wide enough that crews can always keep two lanes of traffic open while they work on the others. The project should be completed in August. If you have a question for the Your Stories team, call (315) 446-9900 or email YourStories@9wsyr.com.
