The New York State Department of Transportation held an open house Thursday night to share their plans of constructing a safer path for pedestrians in downtown Utica.

The DOT is looking to provide a shared-used trail connecting Bagg's Square to Harbor Point.

Officials said the project will improve pedestrians and bicyclist safety along North Genesee Street and support the economic revitalization of the surrounding area.

"We have a trail that we started with the arterial project and that runs down all the way down to Cornelia Street and on the back side of The AUD is Whitesboro Street, we have a 10 foot wide trail that runs back there, the city does and this is a way to connect those two with this trail and ultimately our goal would be to connect with the canal trail." said Jim Piccola.

Construction for the project is scheduled to begin this winter.
