The City of Syracuse Department of Engineering is inviting neighbors on the Southside and Eastside to provide public comments on the preliminary plans to improve the road conditions, sidewalks and streetscape on E. Colvin Street, from S. Salina Street to Jamesville Avenue by Friday, June 25. Construction is planned for 2022. 

The project, currently in the design phase, will focus on increasing mobility for pedestrians, cyclists, and enhancing the greenspace along the .5 mile-stretch. The plans call for the road to be fully repaved with bike lane striping added as a safety measure for cyclists.

Additional improvements will feature new Americans with Disabilities Act concrete sidewalks, ramps, and restriped crosswalks. Lawn areas and snow storage sections are proposed to be created near Garfield Avenue and the Oakwood Cemetery, between Moore Avenue and Benedict Avenue.

Detailed information about the project will be presented at Eastside Area 5 TNT virtual meeting on Tuesday, June 8 at 6:30 p.m. Area residents can also review and comment on design alternatives online at
