Work on upgrading State Route 17 to Interstate status, straighten out Kamikaze Curve in Binghamton and address traffic safety concerns at the 17/Interstate 81 interchanges is getting the thumbs up from the main man at the New York State Department of Transportation.

DOT Commissioner Matthew Driscoll was joined by state and local officials at Cheri Lindsay Park in Binghamton to point to accomplishments made so far on the ambitious project.

Driscoll says the so-called Prospect Mountain Project is the largest launched in Upstate New York.

Phase One wrapped up last December and Phase Two is expected to take 4-5 years.

Driscoll adds that the top priority is safety, not only for the traveling public, but for the construction crews working on the project.
