Local News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Thirty-one road reconstruction projects are on the docket for the City of Syracuse during the 2021 paving season. Roads in every quadrant of the city will see improvements.

From busy city roads to neighborhood streets, the City’s Department of Public Works (DPW) and the Department of Engineering, and its contractors will use state and federal funds to pave roughly 15 miles of road.

“We’ve continued to increase the miles of roads reconstructed each summer and this year’s plan is the most miles we’ve started with in the past three years,” said Mayor Ben Walsh. “If the weather conditions and projects work out, hopefully, we can accomplish even more streets before fall. I appreciate the Common Council’s support for funding of road reconstruction and am proud of the progress we’ve made in repairing our streets.”

An annual street-by-street visual survey and ranking of the condition of streets in the city done in 2019 by the Syracuse Metropolitan Transportation Council identified streets in the poorest conditions, which influences the city’s decision on which roads to focus on improving.

The full list of roads scheduled to be reconstructed this year will be voted on by the Syracuse Common Council on Monday, April 26.

  • Bellevue Avenue, from S. Geddes Street to Summit Avenue
