Overnight Bridge Work Begins Thursday May 15 on NY Routes 5 & 20, Montezuma Area (Seneca/Cayuga Counties)
The New York State Department of Transportation announced that beginning on Thursday, May 15, overnight work will begin on the bridge carrying NY routes 5 and 20 over the Cayuga Lake Outlet at the Cayuga/Seneca county line.

The closure will be in place most nights from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday. On nights when the construction schedule does not demand on-site work, the bridge will remain open to traffic.

During closure hours, traffic will be routed via the following detour, approximately 13 miles in length:

Eastbound through traffic: north on Route 89, then east on Route 31, then south on Route 90 to Routes 5 and 20.

Westbound through traffic: north on Route 90, then west on Route 31, then south on Route 89 to Routes 5 and 20.

Local traffic will be able to approach both ends of the bridge on Routes 5 and 20 to ensure access to the homes and businesses in the area.


Motorists are reminded that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. In accordance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of the driverís license.

It will be a real pain to some, depending on timing and scheduals, but everyone should be glad that the work is being done.

Anyone who needs memory refreshment should watch this video of the Minnesota bridge collapse:

I think of it as the scenic route, although if I had to do it every day, it would be more onerous. Still, it beats driving on the bridge, every day, with no interruption for maintanence, until someday it possibly falls into the river while you're on it.

This is not gonna make the wife happy one little bit, after working all day, now she can add another 13 miles to the 20 mile commute already.


Unfortunately I'm not able to avoid driving that way since I work a 10p-8a shift in Auburn \:\(

I know the little lady will agree, wholeheartedly, she's working 9am till 7pm. This is gonna have a big effect on fuel, and mileage.

I worked late tonight and took the detour home. I may have been a little off base on it not being a bad drive....
