Warning! Traffic Issues This Weekend


The Prospect Mountain project where Interstate 81 and Route 17 meet in Binghamton has been going on for years. I personally feel that it was good enough after phase one, but I didn’t have a say in it. This weekend is going to be nuts driving through what locals call “Kamikaze Curve”.

According to the Prospect Mountain Construction Project Facebook page, Starting tonight (Friday) at 9 pm, the Route 17 ramp that takes you to I 81 will be closed. It will open again on Monday at 6 am. They will have a detour set up to take motorist from Route 17 East  to Exit 4 N, the Port Dickenson exit, send them under I 81 on RT. 7 and up the ramp to I 81 North.

There will also be slowdowns on I 81 South from exit 6 to the 81-17 split on Saturday. According to their Facebook page, these slowdowns could last from 15 to 20 minutes each.

The best advice I could give you is to find an alternate route. If you have to go through that area, make sure you have plenty of gas and maybe pack a lunch because you could be there a while.
All work will be weather permitting, but the forecast is calling for dry conditions which means the work will probably be a go.

The Prospect Mountain Project isn’t expected to be done until 2020. I’ll be sad when it’s over. NOT!
