Last year the round-a-bout was spared but this will only become another Utica money pit and eye sore for residents to look at. We don't have the money or resources needed to fix this disater year after year. Can't wait to see it destoyed once the winter is gone and we get a full accessment of damage.

Think we can get enough plows to straighten it back the way it was? What a f'd up idea the roundabout was to begin with.
Part of the Plan

the roundabout is now about 5 feet wider thanks to close shaving by Utica DPW drivers. it now has 2 lanes!
All part of the MASTER PLAN. Once the plows destroy it, we can bring in a massive infusion of federal money to FIX it.

Exactly, there was absolutely no reason to build this huge expence for the city. Just another eye sore and no resourses or manpower to even fix it. Just another expence for the city and taxpayers while the front of your house see's more deterorations every year.

You tools will think of anything to complain about. The roundabout looks good. Maybe it wasn't needed. But it's there. And it's not going to magically disappear. I'm assuming you losers are the ones that are scared to drive on the arterial or on Route 12. Maybe try getting out into the world and doing something with your time on earth. Then you might not have time to complain about a roundabout! Amazing thought.

I love the roundabout...don't have to wait needlessly at a traffic light(s) to get through that section of town...very progressive. The use of roundabouts is very popular and prevalent in developing areas such as the capital district.
Maybe this really is progress, but the nay-sayers are too negative to see it...just sayin.

what's the problem? you don't have to wait 5 minutes at the lights in that intersection anymore. i go up and down Genesee everyday. i drive through the rotary with no problem. i don't get the lame complaints. it's not like any of you actually pay taxes as it is. so what do you care?

It should never have been built. Utica does not have the manpower, resources, or money to fix this pile of rubble. Ohhhh it's so pretty to bad that's only for our three month summer when it will need repairs and maintenance every year with tax dollars we simply don't have. Roefaro saw a chance to get and spend more taxpayer money and grabbed it but like everything else he touches in the city, it turned to shit and cost taxpayers fool.

very true! about 2% of Utica's population pays taxes and I guarantee the taxpayers aren't trolling topix.

The only thing wrong I can find with it is it's not big enough to bypass the whole city.

Your absolutely spot on. The damn thing is so small the cars are practically touching each other when all in the bullseye at one time. Ive almost benn hit 3 out of the 10 times I've been threw there. What a waste of money and the maintenance will cost taxpayers dearly. Imagine and Roefaro doesn't even pay city taxes because he lives with his mother.

better brush up on the dmv rules and laws for driving in a traffic circle...they exist many places besides utica. it would benefit you and your fellow drivers to know how to conduct yourself.
rules do not apply

Do they have rules for miniature round-a-bout with each road about five feet from the other and pedestrian crossings. This round-a-bout is one of the worse I've seen anywhere. Very dangerous when you have two lanes going into one and pedestrian crossings. There also is no way to remove snow without continually making more more more damage every time it snows. It's a hot mess. Can't wait till the mess up the rest of Genesee Street.
