Designers of the project to re-envision Erie Boulevard presented concept sketches to the public Friday, giving Onondaga County residents a more concrete idea of their plans. Elevating Erie is set to be completed by 2020, and will feature a biking and walking trail in the median of Erie Boulevard East. The path is part of a state-wide initiative to create an Empire State Trail which will span 760-plus miles from Buffalo to Manhattan and up to Canada. Samuel Gordon is the Director of Planning and Zoning for the Town of DeWitt. He says the magnitude of the project will be a struggle.
