Binghamton Roundabout Damage Repaired

Bob Joseph/WNBF News [August 14, 2013]
Repairs to the downtown Binghamton roundabout which was heavily damaged by a tractor trailer have been completed.

A truck driver encountered difficulty at the Court Street intersection with Chenango and Exchange streets five weeks ago. The vehicle damaged two accent lights, a planter, a sign, curbing and other decorative elements of the controversial traffic circle.

The city’s contractor on the Court Street Gateway Project has fixed the damage.

Binghamton mayor Matthew Ryan has said the city expects to be reimbursed for the costs associated with the repair work.

Repairs have yet to be made to several decorative posts at a Chenango Street corner knocked down by another truck in early May.

Speaking on WNBF’s Binghamton Now program, Ryan dismissed persistent complaints that the roundabout can’t be negotiated as “garbage.”

The mayor suggested “maybe we’ll have to have a parade of different kinds of trucks go through to show people how its done.”

Ryan has criticized mayoral candidates who repeatedly raise the roundabout as an issue. He said that only serves to distract from the real challenges faced by the city.
