Syracuse DMV to temporarily close Friday, operations moved to North Syracuse

If you live in Onondaga County and need to visit the DMV, you'll have to go to North Syracuse Friday afternoon.

Pete Bucci with the State Department of Motor Vehicles tells CNY Central that the Western Lights Plaza office on Onondaga Boulevard in Syracuse is closed, and operations will move to the North Syracuse office on East Taft Road.

Bucci says there was some painting and wallpaper work underway at the Onondaga Boulevard location, and some "spots" were noticed on the walls. â??Out of an abundance of caution,â?? Bucci says they are closing the office so they can test the spots for mold. However, Bucci says it is believed that the spots are actually glue.

The North Syracuse office will be open from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. It is normally closed on Fridays.
