Construction crews are busy with another railroad bridge project on a heavily-traveled Broome County street.
Workers from the L.C. Whitford Company of Wellsville have started a rehabilitation job at a span that carries Norfolk Southern Railway tracks over Brandywine Avenue in Binghamton.
The construction operations in coming days could affect the flow of traffic in the work zone.
Rob Faulkner, the Whitford superintendent for the project, said the job should be accomplished with no need for detours.
The shoulder of the roadway between Henry and Eldredge streets will be closed while work is underway. Faulkner is urging drivers to slow down and use caution while traveling through the area.
The rehab project is focusing on the crumbling bridge supports. The railroad bridge itself won't be replaced.
The work in Binghamton follows the replacement of a Norfolk Southern Railway bridge in the village of Johnson City last month. That job resulted in the closure of Oakdale Road for about three weeks.
