The initial phase of the Vestal Parkway project began this morning. Work between Main Street and the county line is expected to run through September 5.

Drivers will encounter occasional lane closures and rough road conditions.

The state Department of Transportation advises motorists to travel slowly through the work zone.

The later resurfacing work on the busier eastern section of the parkway between Main Street and the Binghamton City line will be done at night.
