LACKAWANNA, N.Y. (WKBW) — Your drive along Route 5 will soon be a little slower through parts of the Southtowns.

The New York State Department of Transportation says efforts to rehabilitate the stretch of Route 5 between Ridge Road and NY Route 179 will resume Monday, March 15, around 7:00 a.m.

Drivers can expect delays in both directions as crews close lanes to complete the road work. Those closures will last from about 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily.

The Department of Transportation expects the project to last about six months and will issue further travel advisories as construction progresses.
