SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - New traffic patterns near the famed Saratoga Race Course are drawing criticism and a lawsuit from a landmark neighbor.

The Schenectady Daily Gazette reports Friday (https://bit.ly/1tg6yI8 ) the owner of Siro’s restaurant has sued Saratoga Springs after the city decided to turn the streets around the track into one-way thoroughfares.

The city says the temporary move will ease congestion and keep pedestrians safe during the six-week racing season. The restaurant says turning the streets one-way will confuse drivers and hurt business.

They’ll remain in effect for now. A judge Friday denied the restaurant’s request for an immediate injunction.

Siro’s is located right next to the track’s clubhouse gate. It has been in business since the 1930s.

The restaurant’s investors have included actors Kevin Dillon and Kevin Connolly and jockey Johnny Velazquez.
