There are several signs that the State Fair is coming. One tell-tale sign is the speed limit change on I-690 and NY 695.
The speed reduction happens in the area every year when more people are traveling the highways due to the fair. A temporary traffic signal will be put in place on 690 to control movements out of the upper parking area.
The speed limit reduction from 65 MPH to 55 MPH will remain in place from Wednesday, August 20 until Wednesday, September 3.
The areas affected by the change will be:
-I-690, in both directions, between Exit 10 (Geddes Street) and Exit 5 (State Fair Boulevard / Van Vleck Road)
-NY 695, in both directions, between I-690 and NY 173 (Warners Road).
