The New York State Department of Transportation is reminding travelers of an important advisory going into effect at 7 a.m. on Tuesday morning for arterial travel.

The Court Street off ramp will close at 7 a.m. today and will remain closed until May 5th, 2017. The NYSDOT wants to remind people that speeding in a work zone will result in fines being doubled. Drive carefully.

The closure of the Route 5/8/12 north off ramp to court street is necessary so that workers can safely complete the construction of the new off ramp. Any motorist wanting to access the Downtown Utica area are encouraged to exit at State Street.
