The New York State Department of Transportation says three infrastructure improvement projects are starting across Central New York. The work in Onondaga and Oswego counties has a $19.6 million budget.
“New York State is committed to prioritizing safety, mobility, and accessibility as part of these major investments in revitalizing our upstate communities,” DOT Commissioner Marie Therese Dominguez said in a statement.
The projects first reported by spectrumlocalnews.com include:
- A $14.5 million pavement rehabilitation project on State Route 481 from the I-81 interchange in the town of Cicero to County Route 57 in the city of Fulton
- A $3.2 million project to rehabilitate 1.6 miles of State Route 5 from the State Route 5 bypass ramp in the town of Geddes through the village of Solvay up to Myrtle Street in the city of Syracuse
- A $1.9 million project to install and repair nearly 1.25 miles of ADA accessible sidewalks along U.S. Route 11 in the town of Cicero
“I look forward to seeing significant improvements to our road and bridge infrastructure as part of the new five-year capital program enacted in this year’s State Budget,” state Assembly Transportation Committee chairman William Magnarelli said. “The projects announced today, including parts of State Route 5 in the City of Syracuse and Village of Solvay are important to my constituents.”
