The closure, set to begin at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 2, and extend until Monday, Nov. 6, is the result of an upgrade initiative by Finger Lakes Railway. As a part of their communication strategy, message boards will be deployed to notify drivers of the forthcoming disruption.

During the replacement period, detours will be set up for motorists. Those heading south on Route 34 will be rerouted west via Turnpike Road, taking Route 38 south and then joining Routes 5 and 20 east back to Route 34. Conversely, northbound drivers on Route 34 will be diverted to Routes 5 and 20 west, from there moving to Route 38 north, and finally joining Turnpike Road to return to Route 34.

Residents and travelers seeking additional details on the closure and the upgrade work are encouraged to visit fingerlakesrail.com or auburnny.gov.
