To address growing traffic demands in the area, Syracuse City has initiated a roadway improvement project along 3000 West. Proposed improvements for 3000 West include the addition of curb, gutter, sidewalk, bike lanes, new pavement, roundabout at 700 South, and storm drainage infrastructure. The improvements are proposed to be made between the county drainage channel on the north end down to Bluff Road on the south end. Federal, State and local funding has been secured to build the project. However, it is still to be determined the extent of improvements that can be built with available funds. Construction is approximated to begin spring of 2015. For more information contact Andy Neff at 801-419-9554 or firstname.lastname@example.org. To see a map of the project, click here
