SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — You ask, we answer!
The Your Stories Team received a question about the major construction project on the Thruway in Onondaga County. A viewer wanted to know if construction is still on schedule to be completed by end of the year.
A spokesperson for the Thruway Authority said the project is still slated to be finished by end of the year, barring weather delays.
The $84.2 million dollar project started in the spring of 2022.
Approximately five miles of the Thruway is being reconstructed in both directions, west of exit 37 (Syracuse – Liverpool – Electronics Parkway) to exit 39 (Syracuse – Fulton – I-690 – NY Route 690).
The Thruway Authority estimated roughly 35,000 cars travel on that stretch of I-90 every day.
The project calls for ramp reconstruction, rehabbing two bridges, replacing another one, wider shoulders, new guardrails, and other safety upgrades.
