State Route 825 Rome Bridge Closed

The New York State Department of Transportation is issuing a travel advisory for next week.

After rush hour Monday, improvements are being made to the State Route 825 bridge in Oneida County.

Effective 6:00 p.m. on July 18, 2022, the State Route 825 bridge over State Route 365 in Rome, New York will be closed to all traffic.

The southbound State Route 825 ramp to eastbound State Route 49 will be closed, as will the westbound State Route 49 ramp to northbound State Route 825.

As long as the weather permits, the closures are expected to remain in place until mid-September.

Detour routes are displayed.

Drivers are strongly advised to slow down and be extra careful in work zones. The area covered by this closure is a designated work zone. Fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone and, as the NYS DOT says, “Convictions for two or more speeding tickets in a work zone may result in the suspension of an individual’s driver’s license.”

Construction in central New York continues on the Route 8 Bridge Replacement Project at the Routes 5, 8 and 12 Interchange in New Hartford Utica. As part of this project, bridge decks on bridges carrying State Route 8 over Oneida Street are being replaced.

Culvert repair and replacement continues in Rome on Dewey Road near Wheeler Creek until further notice.
