New York State Department of Transportation Commissioner Joan McDonald today joined with Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney and Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner to announce the opening of a new I-81 Opportunities Outreach Center at the historic Carnegie Building at 335 Montgomery Street in Syracuse. The center will provide an additional resource for area residents to access information and ask questions about the I-81 viaduct project.

"Public input will play a valuable role as we move forward with the I-81 Opportunities project, and we want to ensure that the public has easy access to information about the process, ask questions and make comments," said Commissioner McDonald. "I want to thank Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney for allowing us to use the Carnegie Building and for working with us to make sure residents have access to the information they need."

The I-81 Opportunities Outreach Center is located on the main floor of the building, and will be open Tuesdays through Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
