Here is the situation. It is a state road, however, the dot wants Utica to pay the 100,000 plus to repair them. Utica does pay the electric bill and it is lower as we are not being billed for them. The underground lines are rusted out and the state will not repair them, even though its their property. Don't blame the mayor, blame your governor. Rofereo spent all our money on crap, so if voted for him. Thanks!
I think the lights went in at 6-10k apiece when julian was mayor. I can't remember the figure. but it was a minor scandal at the time over friends & family stuff. Typical utican workmanship and pride.

Utica politicians don't want you to see how bad the city streets are so they keep the lights off. The police tell us to put lights around are houses to deter crime but yet they leave the street lights off.

The new intersection on Burrstone Rd is a mess with construction materials, no clear road markings, and no street lights to see clearly.
When the accident happens, it will be bad.

I thought it was just me. Who designs these? NO CLEAR MARKINGS AND PITCH BLACK. Someone is going to turn unto incoming traffic when making a left to grab 12N. Is anyone going to address this situation?

If you're too feeble to drive on a temporary ramp stay off the road or wait for daylight. What do you want? If they coddled the over 60 crowd for that week they'd be delayed. Relax soon it will have the handicapped stripes so you feel safe.

They NEED make sure that the overpass/bridge on burrstone approaching the street light is taken care of and properly salted/sanded during the winter. Even though its not steep it may get dicey at times in sleet and stuff.

The ramp to get to 12 North Left turn from Burrstone RD is not temporary It would be nice if the State or City had a street light there.
no one is safe

FYI, I am not over 60, have very good eyesight(and excellent hearing). And have a fairly good level of intelligence and common sense.
The new Burrstone Rd/Rt 12 intersection needs to be addressed before a serious accident happens, and someone is DOA. This intersection is NOT clearly marked!
Maybe Utica is the "City of Darkness", in more ways than one.

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ROADWAY AND LIGHTING? Want to know, before a disaster happens. I LIKE "City of Darkness" label...goes well with Utica!

Are they going to have 2 ramps to go north on 12? It appears you will soon be able to make a left at the light coming from utica college and make a right to take the ramp.

No, the ramp being built goes to a newly built much needed parking lot.
