Auburn, NY -- Beginning Thursday, overnight work will close the bridge carrying 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. during the week. On weekends, and nights when the construction schedule does not demand on-site work, the bridge will remain open to traffic. Construction is expected to continue into June.
During closure hours, traffic will be routed onto the following detour, which is about 13 miles:
Eastbound traffic: North on Route 89, then east on Route 31, then south on Route 90 to Routes 5 and 20.
Westbound 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.
