Community Meetings With DOT About 81 Project Announced

Syracuse, N.Y. - The New York State DOT has released when they will hold other community meetings in Onondaga County to discuss a plan to rip down I-81 in Syracuse and replace it with a community grid.

In April, the DOT announced the community grid as its "preferred choice" to replace I-81.

The Community Grid Alternative would demolish the stretch of highway that runs through downtown and reroute traffic to I-481 in addition create a new “Business Loop” route through Syracuse called “BL 81.”
