SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Syracuse University has confirmed that construction on the Carrier Dome has been deemed essential and will continue.

This comes after Gov. Andrew Cuomo stopped all non-essential construction on Friday.

Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon told NewsChannel 9 that the structure wouldn’t be safe if the work stopped.

The construction has been classified as essential and workers are now allowed to continue installing the new roof and upgrading the stadium.
