Syracuse, N.Y.  – The City of Syracuse will close Grant Boulevard from Cleveland Avenue to Craig Street beginning Wednesday, September 21 to make necessary repairs for the Butternut Street Dig Once project. Crews will close and reconstruct this additional portion of Grant Boulevard to replace sewer and water mains.

The road will remain closed to through traffic while work is being done. Detours will be in place to redirect traffic. Work is expected to take place from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day.

This work by the Department of Engineering is part of the Butternut Street Dig Once project that will continue throughout the year. Dig Once projects signify an enhanced level of coordination with utility providers (water, sewer, telecommunication, gas, etc.) with the goal of replacing and repairing as much underground infrastructure as possible to minimize any future excavations made in newly paved roads.
