LIVERPOOL, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The New York State Thruway Authority today announced Vine Street in Liverpool will temporarily close beginning early Monday morning as part of the ongoing replacement of bridges carrying the NYS Thruway (I-90) over Vine Street and the CSX Railroad in Liverpool, Onondaga County.
The closure will allow contractors to put up major components of the Vine Street and CSX bridges, including abutments, highway approaches, and bridge decking.
The bridges are being replaced with 103-foot single span bridges featuring safety upgrades of increased shoulder widths on I-90 and additional height clearance for vehicular traffic on Vine Street and for CSX trains.
The work is being completed in stages to maintain two travel lanes in each direction on the Thruway throughout the duration of the project, which is scheduled to be completed in November.
The closure is expected to last approximately five weeks. All work is weather dependent.
During the scheduled closure, Vine Street will be closed to all traffic from Commerce Boulevard to Seventh Street. Roadway signs will be posted along the detour route, which will direct drivers via Henry Clay Boulevard — Electronics Parkway — Old Liverpool Road – to Oswego Street.
