UTICA, N.Y. – Utica is planning to establish new traffic patterns as part of its ‘Complete Streets’ project, and is creating a temporary model of the new setup on Genesee Street.

“The ongoing paving on Genesee Street provided the City an opportunity to institute a Complete Street concept on a temporary basis. We will monitor and assess the temporary changes and determine the best option moving forward,” said Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri.

The concept involves incorporating adequate lane space for bikes, drivers and pedestrians. Crews will make wider driving lanes, turning lanes, parking spaces and bike lanes.

After the model is in place on Genesee Street between Oneida Square and Jewett Place next week, the public is welcome to provide feedback by filling out a survey at: www.cityofutica.com.

If the new traffic pattern proves beneficial, the city will make a permanent striping change to this section of Genesee Street.

The initiative was a collaborative effort by the Department of Public Works and Engineering, Utica Complete Streets Work Group, AmeriCorps and MVCC civil engineering students.
