81 in North Syr closed as concrete falls from 481 overpass

Traffic from 81South is being exited to 481 North in North Syracuse, as DOT crews check concrete falling from the 481 overpass

Update (1:15pm): Route 81 is now reopened, as DOT finish working after concrete fell from the 481 overpass at the North Syracuse interchange on Saturday morning.

Crews closed 81 Southbound first, and then the Northbound lanes as they removed concrete that had crumbled, and checked the bridge.

Traffic was backed up late Saturday morning as cars had to detour off 81 onto 481 to make room for the crews to get under the overpass, but travel through the busy intersection is now unrestricted.
