Prepare for three-day shut down of Route 370 Bridge over Seneca River

If you travel over the bridge that carries Route 370 over the Seneca River, be prepared to find another way to get where you're going.

The State DOT is advising drivers that the bridge will be closed to all traffic for three days. Beginning at 5 a.m. on Monday, August 5, crews will be pouring concrete. The bridge is scheduled to re-open to one-way, signal controlled traffic on Thursday, August 8.

During the closure period, all traffic will be directed along the following detour routes:

Eastbound (Baldwinsville to Liverpool): From Route 370, turn north onto NY 631 (the Baldwinsville bypass), turn right onto NY 31, turn right onto Onondaga County Route 57, then turn right onto John Glenn Blvd, returning to Route 370.

Westbound (Liverpool to Baldwinsville): Turn right or continue onto John Glenn Blvd, turn left onto Onondaga County Route 57, turn left onto NY 31, then turn left onto NY 631, returning to Route 370.

Local traffic will be permitted on Route 370 in both directions on the west side of the river between NY 631 and Hayes Road.

The pouring of concrete is weather dependent. If rain is in the forecast, it may be postponed until a rain-free, three day window is forecast.
