Liverpool At the request of the towns of Salina and Cicero and Onondaga County Legislator Kathleen Rapp, staff from the Syracuse Metropolitan Transportation Council will provide an overview of The I-81 Challenge at 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 1 at the Holiday Inn in Liverpool (441 Electronics Parkway). The meeting will include a brief presentation from SMTC staff that will provide background information about The I-81 Challenge.
The I-81 Challenge is the official decision-making process for the future of I-81 through the Syracuse region. This effort is being led by the New York State Department of Transportation, with assistance from the SMTC.
The NYSDOT and the SMTC are preparing for a region-wide public meeting later in May, to present possible strategies for I-81 and to discuss the next steps in the process. The meeting on May 1 will give residents an opportunity to learn about the planning process in preparation for the region-wide public meeting.
