Syracuse, N.Y. – Mayor Walsh announced “dig once” road work is taking place on West Genesee Street on the Westside. Syracuse Water Department will close the intersection of West Genesee and Milton Avenue on Tuesday, August 2 and Wednesday, August 3 to install a new water main pipe. Beginning Thursday, August 4, traffic will be open at the intersection but reduced in both directions until road work is complete. Detours will be in place in the surrounding area until work at the intersection is complete.
Work is expected to take place from 7:00 a.m. until approximately 3:30 p.m. Actual project start dates and timeframes are contingent on favorable weather.
This work by the Department of Water is part of the West Genesee Dig Once project that will continue throughout the year. Dig Once projects signify an enhanced level of coordination with utility providers (water, sewer, telecommunication, gas, etc.) with the goal of replacing and repairing as much underground infrastructure as possible to minimize any future excavations made in newly paved roads.
