Created: 04/15/2014 4:41 AM WHEC.com

Starting Wednesday, drivers who take the 590 in Irondequoit could see some changes in their commute.

State Department of Transportation officials say they will be repairing several bridges, including the 590 overpass to 104 West and Norton Street/Bay View Road bridge. On Wednesday, part of Norton Street near 590 will be closed to all eastbound traffic. A detour will direct drivers to 590 south to Empire Boulevard, then back north on 590 to Norton Street. Lanes will also be closed on 590 near the 104 interchange. Electronic message boards will alert drivers of changes.

Construction is expected to last until October.
