UPDATE: Genesee Street is back open.

This may cause a problem for your commute. Portions of Genesee Street in Utica are closed indefinitely.

Utica Police say, Genesee Street between Bank Place and Washington Street is closed in both directions until further notice. A large piece of metal hanging from The Bank of Utica spire is causing the closure. "The debris has the potential to cause injury and damage to pedestrians and motorists."

Construction crews are set to begin repairs today (8/7), but it is not known how long those repairs will take.

Washington Street behind Bank of Utica is closed as well.
