In January, 2017 the Town Board of the Town of Onondaga passed a resolution regarding the need to maintain the existing alignment of Interstate 81 through the city of Syracuse.

The resolution states, “although there are a variety of ways to deal with I-81’s aging infrastructure, the existing ‘Interstate’ function and design must be preserved, because any solution which would remove I-81’s vital function from its present alignment would irreparably harm the region economic and corresponding employment dependent upon the highway network in addition to negatively impacting local neighborhoods and quality of life.”
