City seeks public input on roadwork planned for 2021
SYRACUSE, N.Y. – The City of Syracuse will hold a public information meeting for a paving project coming in 2021 in downtown Syracuse. The meeting will take place on Tuesday, May 21 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., in the City Hall Commons Atrium at 233 E. Washington Street.
The following streets will be impacted:
- South Warren Street – from South Salina Street to Erie Boulevard
- Clinton Street – from West Genesee Street to Jefferson Street
- Montgomery Street – from Erie Boulevard to East Adams Street
- Jefferson Street – from South Clinton Street to Montgomery Street
This project is primarily a “mill and pave” project where the existing top course of asphalt pavement is removed and replaced with 1 ½” of new asphalt. The project will also improve existing pedestrian facilities, including: limited sections of sidewalk; ADA curb ramps, sections of curbs, and pedestrian signals, as required; crosswalks; and new pavement striping along the project limits. The City initiated the project to improve the mobility and safety of all vehicular, cyclist, and pedestrian traffic on the impacted streets. The work is scheduled to begin in mid-2021.
The purpose of the meeting, which is required for federally funded projects, is to obtain comments on the project’s social, economic, and environmental effects from individuals, groups, officials, and local agencies. Representatives of the City Engineering Department, New York State Department of Transportation, and the Project Consultant will be in attendance to discuss the project and answer any questions. Written comments will be received until June 4 at email@example.com.
