NYSDOT Schedules Open House About Fulton Resurfacing Project

FULTON – The New York State Department of Transportation will hold an open house meeting on January 6, regarding a resurfacing project on Route 3 in the city of Fulton.

The open house will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. in the second floor courtroom at the Fulton City Hall, at 141 S. First St.

At the meeting, preliminary drawings for the upcoming project will be available for review and representatives from NYSDOT will be present to answer questions.

No formal presentation is planned.

Preliminary plans call for milling and resurfacing Route 3 from Lakeview Avenue to the eastern city line near Oneida Street.

In addition, minor drainage, sidewalk, traffic signal and safety improvements will take place at various locations within the project area.

Traffic will be maintained on-site during construction, with flaggers when necessary.

Access to driveways will be maintained at all times during construction.

Work is expected to take place during the 2016 construction season.

This open house is part of the continuing effort by the Department to encourage public participation in the development of transportation projects.

Fulton City Hall is accessible to people with disabilities.

Please contact Mike Washburn, P.E. at (315) 428–3227 if a sign language interpreter, assisted listening system, or other accommodation will be required to facilitate your participation in the open house.

  1. People can thank Legislator Castiglia for sending a letter to the New York D.O.T. to get this done in 2016 instead of 2017 which they had planned on doing.

  2. The surface of Rt 3 through Fulton reminds me of our National Parks. In front of Mt. Adna cemetery is The Grand Canyon. Further east by the professional building lie The Great Sand Dunes. On the west side, between 1st and 2nd street, are The Canyonlands. Back on the east side between 5th and 6th there’s a pavement break known as Death Valley. At the intersection of 481 and Oneida you can swim in a manhole cover known as Crater Lake and there are other spots that look like Meteor Crater. Fortunately, they removed the wooden RR track crossing by the fire station, aka, Petrified Forest but it’s still like driving over Rocky Mountain. Anyway, on a trip either eastbound or westbound you will encounter The Badlands.

  3. Every Traveler driving past Mount Edna Cemetery will thank you. It’s long long over due to be fixed. There may not have been a road left by 2017.
