Expect Traffic Delays All Week at I-84 / 684 Interchange
Now this may seem a little redundant, because it seems like things are always backed up in that spots but starting today (September 17), you can expect delays traveling from I-84 to 684, as more construction work is scheduled to begin.
There are a few things in life that are certain: death, taxes, and traffic delays at the I-84, 684 interchange. It's just the way is, and continuing through Friday, nightly closures are expected.
Weather permitting, look for crews out between 10 PM and 5 AM, closing lanes and redirecting traffic at the I-84 westbound exit ramp to Exit 20S, I-684 south.
You'll have to follow the posted detour signs and anticipate delays. Remember to obey work zone area speed limits as well. Traffic fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone area, and convictions of two or more speeding violations could result in the suspension of your drivers license.
For updated traffic conditions, including work zone area's you can call 511, or visit www.511NY.org.
