Prospect Mountain Construction Traffic Pattern Shift

The Prospect Mountain Construction Project shifts into another phase with a new traffic pattern in place on NY 17 East between Exit 72 (Front St.) and Exit 4 S-N (Binghamton/Port Dickinson). The new, NY 17 East Flyover Bridge over the Chenango River will be opened to two lanes of NY 17 East traffic. This traffic pattern change will allow roadway reconstruction work to begin on I81 South between the Chenango River and Exit 4 S-N (Binghamton/Port Dickinson). In addition, Exit 4 S-N will be closed for NY Route 17 Eastbound traffic long-term due to conflicting traffic patterns with I81 South. A signed detour route will be in place directing motorists to NY 17 East to Exit 3 (Industrial Park) to US 11 (Court St.) to NY 7.

Also there is a long-term traffic pattern change on I81 South between the Chenango River and Exit 4 S-N (Binghamton/Port Dickinson). Two lanes of traffic will be shifted to the right for crews to reconstruct the left lane. Note that Exit 4 S-N (Binghamton/Port Dickinson) will be open to only I81 South exiting traffic.
