So I-690 is the major east-west artery through Syracuse.
They’re doing overpass deck replacements. The good news is they’re using precast units, so they only have to close from Friday through Monday morning to do an overpass. They’ve done three so far and are doing a fourth this weekend. And so:
- I-690 eastbound is closed today, from downtown to just past the University, with all eastbound traffic diverted to surface streets. But:
- Syracuse is playing UConn tonight at the Carrier Dome. And:
- The dojo Halloween party is tonight, on the other side of the city from us. And:
- My wife has an exam tonight, a thousand feet or so away from the Carrier Dome.
- Hilarity ensues.
