STEUBEN COUNTY, N.Y. (WETM) — The New York State Department of Transportation is advising motorists of lane closures beginning Tuesday, May 17, along I-86 in the Towns of Bath and Campbell in Steuben County to facilitate highway maintenance.

According to the NYS DOT, Eastbound traffic along I-86 between exits 39 and 40 in the Town of Bath will be reduced to a single lane to facilitate a project to repair the bridge carrying I-86 over Smith Creek.
