6/30/2020

(BINGHAMTON, N.Y.) — Mayor Richard C. David on Tuesday announced the City of Binghamton is seeking public comment on pedestrian safety improvements at 22 sites across the City.

“Walkable neighborhoods are at the core of Binghamton’s infrastructure investments every year,” said Mayor David. “These projects will ensure that residents of all ages and abilities can travel to important community spaces safely.”

Residents may provide feedback and learn more about the projects at: https://bingpedsafety.com/. The deadline for public comment is July 10.

This project consists of improvements to sidewalks, curb ramps, crosswalks and signage at 22 sites, centered on 10 distinct locations in close proximity to pedestrian generators such as schools, churches, hospitals and community centers. The total construction cost is estimated at $518,000, federally funded through the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).

Locations include pedestrian areas near Theodore Roosevelt Elementary, Woodrow Wilson Elementary, West Middle School, East Middle School, UHS Binghamton General Hospital, St. Michael’s Church, Lee Barta Community Center and other important community spaces within the City.

The project is scheduled to have construction begin later this year and be complete in spring 2021.
