State Funding For Binghamton Gateway Project Restored

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Binghamton officials say $675,000 in state funding for the Front Street Gateway Project has been restored.

The total cost of the work on the 3,000-foot-long section of Front Street currently is projected to be $4.5 million. The federal government is expected to cover 80 percent of the bill.

Improvements are planned between Prospect Street to the Broome County Health Department offices.

The project calls for full-depth street reconstruction, new curbs and sidewalks, along with sanitary and storm sewer systems. Street lighting, furniture and landscaping also are included in the plans.

A “gateway feature” would be installed at the north end of the project near the exit from Route 17.

Construction is expected to start in April and be completed in about seven months.
