Construction on Route 81 south of Syracuse will continue today - but now in the opposite direction.

Department of Transportation officials say work on the Brighton Avenue bridge on Route 81 had closed the right and center lanes southbound.  As of this morning, that work will now continue in the northbound direction.  That means the left and center lanes will be closed, with traffic shifter to the right and on-ramp lanes.  Construction is expected to continue for at least the next couple of weeks.
