A section of Almond Street under the I-81 viaduct will close for about two weeks starting Monday to facilitate preliminary utility work for the highway project. Detours will be posted for traffic in both directions between Van Buren and Taylor streets. The closure will affect those who use Almond Street to get to the VA Medical Center, SUNY ESF, Syracuse University, and Toomey Abbott Towers. Work is expected to be completed by July 23rd.
