Lane closures are expected this week as crews work to complete a $65 million project to improve Interstate 690 through the city of Syracuse.
Beginning Tuesday, the state Department of Transportation said in a news release that motorists should expect full lane closures and mobile lane closures during the overnight hours. The lane closures are needed to allow crews to apply pavement markings, the agency added.
The lane closures will affect the eastbound and westbound lanes of I-690 along the Teall/Beech corridor. The closures could continue through Friday, April 12.
Beginning Monday, April 15, the left travel lanes on the eastbound and westbound sides of I-690 will be closed for median barrier work. This part of the project is expected to take six weeks.
The DOT reminds motorists that fines are doubled for work zone infractions. Your license could be suspended if you're convicted of two or more violations in a work zone.
