Closure of I-81 delayed due to weather

Local News

A planned nightly closing of a section of Interstate 81 in Binghamton has been delayed due to high water.

The New York State Department of Transportation had originally intended to close I-81 South from the on ramp to Route 17 West to Exit 4.

That section crosses the Chenango River where work is also underway on a new bridge as part of the Prospect Mountain project.     

However, the DOT says high water in the river is forcing a postponement of the work, and therefore the closures, until further notice.
