The recent remarks from Senator Schumer and Mayor Buttigieg regarding the I-81 corridor are very promising. Federal support for this critical project will help move past the series of delays we have faced. As always, delays in projects like these hit taxpayers the hardest. The current situation, as highlighted by the mayor and senator, disproportionately affects minority communities in Syracuse.
The implementation of a community grid will help revitalize the neighborhood business corridors, bring new employment opportunities to the city. I am thrilled that this project is getting the national attention it needs. I look forward to working with state and federal officials to get this essential project in motion, a key piece for the safety and prosperity that Syracuse deserves.
