News10NBC has learned that the Chili Avenue Bridge over the Erie Canal in the City of Rochester is closed until further notice.

DOT officials say the closure is a precaution after crews discovered advanced steel deterioration Tuesday during an ongoing bridge painting project.

Officials say the closure was unplanned. A temporary detour will be posted directing eastbound drivers to Brooks Avenue and westbound motorists to Genesee Park Boulevard.

We will let you know when the bridge is scheduled to reopen.
