Transition to New Route 17 Bridge

- Another milestone is about to be reached in the Prospect Mountain highway reconstruction project with the opening of another new bridge.

The new Route 17 West deck over the Chenango River is expected to be open by Friday morning.

Tomorrow night at 9 p.m., work to transition from the old bridge to the new one will begin.

From that point until about 6 the following morning, Route 17 West traffic will be detoured onto Interstate 81 north, getting off at exit 5 and then coming back down I-81 to access 17 west.

DOT Regional Director Jack Williams encourages everyone to drive safely through the construction zone.
