Westbound I-690 Closure over Onondaga Creek Extended

The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) advises that due to unanticipated circumstances, westbound I-690 over Onondaga Creek will remain closed until approximately 3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 3, 2013.

 The delay is due to the late arrival of large crane capable of lifting the pre-cast slabs from their storage area on the west side of the creek to the center and eastern spans.  The crane arrived this morning and the slab installation is underway.  Once the slabs are fully set and grouted together, the forming of the concrete safety parapet can begin.  Once these parapets are cured, the deck surface smoothed and the pavement markings installed, the road will be opened to traffic.
