DOT schedules bridge work after flat tires

Lane closures are scheduled for bridge maintenance on I-290 Sunday, after at least 16 vehicles were damaged on the roadway Thursday. A loose bridge joint caused several flat tires during Thursday morning’s commute. The situation caused a road closure and major backups on one of the area’s busiest roadways.

The New York State Department of Transportation says I-290 Westbound, near Delaware Avenue, will have the two left lanes closed from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. Sunday. The DOT says drivers should expect delays in the vicinity. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
