Planning the Next Binghamton Gateway Project

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Binghamton residents will have an opportunity to learn about the proposed Front Street Gateway Project in a public meeting this week.

City officials say the session will be held Thursday evening at the Broome County Health Department offices at 225 Front Street.

The Front Street project is expected to cost $4.5 million dollars. The city would cover five percent of that; 15 percent would coming from the state and 80 percent would be funded by the federal government.

Reconstruction is planned for the section of Front Street between Main Street and Prospect Street, just south of the exit from Route Seventeen.

The project is to include paving, curbs, sidewalks, utilities and other amenities.

City officials and representatives of a consultant firm are expected to attend Thursday’s public meeting, which is scheduled to run from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

The first 30 minutes will be set aside for an informal question-and-answer session. The formal meeting is to start at 7 p.m.

Binghamton mayor Matthew Ryan said he’s encouraging residents to attend the meeting to ask questions and offer their opinions about the planned work.

The Front Street project session is being held as the $2.7 million Court Street Gateway Project nears completion.

Most of the work on Court Street between Exchange and Hawley streets has been finished. Final touches including some additional plantings are to take place next spring.
