Second roundabout now open on Rt. 11 in the Town of Dickinson
DICKINSON (WBNG) -- Motorists traveling southbound on I-81 may now use Exit Ramp 5 and the intersection along Rt. 11. in the Town of Dickinson.
The exit and intersection have reopened after being closed for about 10 days while crews completed a second roundabout in the area.
The bridge on New York State Rt. 11 or Front Street in the Town of Dickinson began a $16 million infrastructure upgrade project in May of 2021.
Since then, bridge upgrades include wider lanes, sidewalks and new traffic patterns due to the two roundabouts.
The completion of the second roundabout comes just in time for the annual Spiedie Fest & Balloon Rally at Otsiningo Park in the Town of Dickinson happening this weekend.
The New York State Department of Transportation is encouraging motorists to slow down and drive responsibly in work zones.
