The combination of Oneida County’s physical geography, existing economic development and future growth, and quality of life all factor into our transportation infrastructure needs.

This includes focusing on:

  • Regional and local high-impact connectivity projects that address the short- and long-term infrastructure needs of workforce, freight, and leisure transportation. The goal is to enhance the ease at which regional destinations can be reached and improve accessibility to convenience goods and services.
  • Critical corridor projects that establish attractive community gateways, “right size” existing infrastructure, address inadequate or outdated design, and/or improve control or circulation while adding pedestrian-friendly
  • Features and green infrastructure elements where appropriate
  • Roads and intersections with high safety concerns and develop short- and long-term solutions
  • Sustainable strategies related to short- and long-term maintenance including improving asset management and identifying opportunities for jurisdictional collaboration and the adopting of regional complete street guidelines
