2017 Natinal baseball Hall of Fame Induction Weekend
The annual National Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Weekend will be held in the Village of Cooperstown from Friday, July 28th, through Monday, July 31st. The Induction Ceremony will take place on Sunday, July 30th, on the grounds outside the Clark Sports Center, located on Susquehanna Avenue.
Motorists should expect delays and heavy traffic along NYS Route 28 from I-88 Exit 17 into the Village of Cooperstown. Motorists are asked to use extreme caution while traveling along NYS Route 28 and the local streets due to expected pedestrian traffic. Peak traffic flows and delays are anticipated on Sunday prior to and at the conclusion of the Induction Ceremony.
It is expected that heavier than normal traffic will occur along I-88, NYS Routes 80, 7, and 23, and US Route 20 during this event due to attendees utilizing the hotels and restaurants in the area.
Reconstruction resumes on the NB and SB Hylan Boulevard Bridges, which span the Staten Island Expressway between EB Narrows Road South and WB Narrows Road North. Seek alternate routes. One lane of traffic will be open to motorists in each direction on the bridges through the project. Pedestrian access will remain.
Preliminary deck repairs on the right half of both bridges begins July 7th and lasts through July 10th. Closure of the left half of each bridge begins July 13th and lasts through early 2017.
Three NB travel lanes on the Major Deegan Expressway have been reduced to two travel lanes from Exit 3 (East 138th Street/Grand Concourse) to beyond Exit 5 (161st Street/Macombs Dam Bridge) and the Macombs Dam Bridge.
