Lyndon Corners was listed last week in the New York State Department of Transportation’s plan to move I-81 traffic to I-481 when the current interstate viaduct in Downtown Syracuse is taken down. The DOT is planning to remodel the I-481 exit ramps to Route 5 and add a right-turning lane to Route 5 eastbound at Lyndon Corners.
