SYRACUSE -- A 2 1/2-mile stretch here along 700 South and 2500 West, expanded to include bicycle lanes and street lighting, is scheduled for a Friday, Oct. 11, ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The ceremony will be at 3 p.m. at Canterbury Park, 1600 S. 2500 West.
The project bid for $2.7 million and was done by Advanced Paving and Construction of Ogden, Syracuse City Planner Noah Steele said.
Over the past two years, nearly 14 miles of existing roadway have been improved with surface treatments or replacement, Steele said.
Many of the projects included making improvements to the sidewalks, ramps, curb and gutters, as well as underground pipe infrastructure.
The city's largest project is one recently being completed at 700 South and 2500 West, Steele said. It is a 2 1/2-mile mile stretch of roadway expanded with bicycle lanes and street lighting to provide greater safety for vehicles and pedestrians.
