Final phase of West Genesee Streetscape Project underway

Dear Residents,

With warmer temperatures on the way, we look forward to flowering plants, lazy days at our local parks and those orange construction barrels!

On behalf of the entire Camillus Town Board, I am proud to inform you we have entered into the final phase of the West Genesee Streetscape Project. This project began in February of 2000 and has been funded by Community Development. Currently the final phase of construction from Gillespie Avenue to MacKay Avenue is well underway and this area is swimming in a sea of orange barrels. The Town of Camillus went out to bid for this project and construction began about a week ago. The Town of Camillus has secured a federal grant for this final phase.

Weather permitting, the project may be completed by June 2011. As a reminder, the orange construction barrels indicate a temporary change in traffic patterns. Please watch for workers and maintain a safe speed.

The Onondaga County Department of Transportation is currently surveying Route 5, the area from route 173 to the village of Camillus line. The county has proposed road improvements for this area. An informational meeting will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday May 26 at the Municipal Building. Please watch the newspaper for additional details and make plans to attend this very important meeting.

As always, please feel free to contact my office at 488-1335 or email me at macoogan@townofcamillus.com with your questions or comments. My door is always open; please feel free to stop in to say hello!
