Construction of new bike lanes, curbs and pavement on Euclid Avenue is underway, with road work aimed at improving commuter safety to be finished by the start of the fall 2018 semester at Syracuse University.
The project, known as the Euclid Avenue Bike and Pedestrian Network Expansion, was authorized in 2017 to improve roads for the safety of pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists in Syracuse, according to a July Common Council agenda.
Joe Alfieri, director of SU’s Division of Campus Planning, Design and Construction, said in an email that the project is designed, managed, approved and paid for by the city. Syracuse’s Department of Public Works started the roadwork in the section of Euclid Avenue between Westcott Street and Comstock Avenue on July 5. Alfieri said the road work should be finished before students move in for the fall 2018 semester.
Roadwork includes painting designated bike lanes on both sides of the street, according to a project fact sheet posted by DPW. These bike lanes will connect Westcott Street and Comstock Avenue.
