Meeting Held On Proposed Changes To Onondaga Lake Parkway

Liverpool, N.Y. - Liverpool residents get a chance to share their thoughts on proposed changes to the Onondaga Lake Parkway.

The state DOT held a meeting last night to discuss ideas like cutting the number of lanes on the highway from four to two and adding turn lanes to Old Liverpool Road.

Although headlines often go to tractor trailers slamming into the rail bridge, DOT Officials are also concerned with the number of head on collisions on the parkway. State Data shows the Onondaga Lake Parkway sees more than 20,000 vehicles a day and crashes on the parkway are 10-times more likely to be deadly.

Some at the meeting say they were disappointed after a DOT regional design engineer left before answering any questions.

The DOT says the public comment period on the proposed project will be open until December 16th.
