OSWEGO, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The 2021 construction season for the City of Oswego kicks off resulting in widespread paving projects and multiple detours throughout the city.

The milling of city streets will begin Monday, May 3 and is expected to last about 3 weeks.

“We’ve worked hard to approve a paving plan and get the project underway as early in the season as possible. Our 2021 paving plan builds on our $4 million in paving in the last five years, addressing some of the bumpiest streets in the city,” said Mayor Billy Barlow.  “I thank motorists and residents for their patience and cooperation in advance and look forward to the project being completed in short order.”

The $750,000 paving plan will pave several streets on both the east and west side of the city, along with the Water Street parking lot behind Canal Commons and a large section of East First Street, which is included in the East First Street’s redesign project.

  • East First Street (SR104 to end of public space)
  • East 6th Street (East Schuyler Street to East Utica Street)
  • East 9th Street (Church Street  to Lawrence Street)
  • East 11th Street (East Cayuga Street to East Seneca Street)
  • East 12th Street (Mohawk Street to Albany Street)
  • Mercer Street (East 9th Street to Mitchell Street)
  • Elm Street (Elm Street to end to Maple Street)

  • West Fifth Sreet (West Utica Street to West Erie Street)
