Onondaga County Supervisors Back Tunnel Option For I-81

Onondaga, N.Y. - Town supervisors in Onondaga County say they're on the same page when it comes to replacing Interstate 81.   

Yesterday, they announced support for a plan that would put a tunnel in Syracuse.   But, the state DOT says that option would cost billions of dollars.   Another idea is to replace the highway with a boulevard and route traffic onto what is currently Interstate 481.   

A third proposal calls for I-81 to be replaced with a similar version of the current layout.

Thursday night, Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh continued to stand in support of the boulevard option.
