The Department of Transportation has shut down a busy bridge in Onondaga County to make emergency repairs.

The bridge in question is the Route 11 bridge over the Oneida river in Brewerton. An inspection Thursday morning of the bridge found significant deterioration in a steel connection area on one of the main beams there.

The bridge is on the border of Onondaga and Oswego Countys and will be closed indefinately as repairs crews are brought in. Detours have now been set up using Bartel Road , Interstate 81 and State Route 49.
