Future of 81

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) – The New York State Department of Transportation has scheduled a series of nine “neighborhood meetings” about the I-81 viaduct project.

The meetings, which were announced at the DOT’s I-81 Open House Tuesday, will happen in both the City of Syracuse and its suburbs.
