A number of road projects in the next few days will further complicate travel in the Binghamton area.

The New York State Department of Transportation says, as part of the Prospect Mountain project on Interstate 81/ State Route 17 in Binghamton, Mygatt Street between Prospect and LaGrange Streets, Front Street between Prospect and Bevier Streets and Prospect Street in the vicinity of the new Prospect Connector will experience periodic, alternating lane closures.

Also through July 17,  from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, Chenango Street will have lane closures between Moffat Avenue and Sturges Streets.

Broome County officials say paving will be done through July 31ST on Old Vestal Road from the Route 201 bridge to Shippers Road.  Traffic delays are expected and motorists are encouraged to find alternate routes.

July 18, motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians will not be allowed on a portion of Chenango Street.  The street will be closed to all traffic between Moffat Avenue and Sturges Street at 6 a.m.  as crews install the concrete arch superstructures for the new Interstate 81 South/State Route 17 East bridge over Chenango Street.  A signed detour will be in effect.

During the closure, a free shuttle bus will provide transportation for pedestrian and bicyclists around the road and sidewalk closure. The shuttle stop will be at the intersection of  Chenango and Morgan Streets. The work is expected to wrap up by 6 p.m. July 19, weather permitting.
