New York State Department of Transportation Commissioner Marie Therese Dominguez announced Monday that work has begun on a $10.5 million project in Onondaga County that will resurface portions of Thompson Road and State Route 298 - including Carrier Circle and Military Circle - in the towns of DeWitt and Salina.
The project will add new pavement and make improvements to sidewalks, curb ramps, crosswalks and traffic signals to ease travel and enhance safety along a vital travel corridor that supports numerous commercial establishments and is widely used by motorists looking to reach downtown Syracuse, the city’s northern suburbs, Interstate 690 and the New York State Thruway.
Upgrades will be made as needed to sidewalks, curb ramps, signs, crosswalks, pavement markings, traffic signals and guide rails. Drainage systems will also be cleaned and repaired.
All traffic will be maintained on-site using daily lane and shoulder closures. All paving operations on Thompson Road and Carrier Circle will be performed at night. The project is expected to be completed in November of 2023.
“I am pleased to see state infrastructure resources that I’ve supported through the budget process being deployed in DeWitt and Salina. The important work to resurface State Route 298, Thompson Road and Carrier Circle will improve safety and ease travel along this vital corridor, which is used by so many people to get to Syracuse, or work, school and other destinations," Sen. John Mannion said.
