A number of experts will be coming to the Syracuse area over the next few months to share their experiences with transportation projects on a scale similar to what’s ahead for Interstate 81. The series is being organized and co-sponsored by the city, county, and state. County Executive Joanie Mahoney expects the experts will be a wealth of information. Mahoney says the speakers are intended to complement the displays and materials at the Carnegie library on Columbus Circle where people can stop in at their leisure to learn more about the options and process.
The State Department of Transportation has released the schedule of the next four neighborhoods meetings about the future of I-81 through Syracuse. About 100 people turned out for the first one held two weeks ago in Toomey Abbott Towers, a stone’s throw from the highway.
