January 28 is the day the New York State Department of Transportation is hosting an online public meeting to talk about the redesign of the southwestern entrance to the City of Binghamton on Route 363. 

Officials are looking at reworking the area between the Arena and the confluence of the Chenango and Susquehanna Rivers to allow better and safer traffic flow as well as accommodations for pedestrians and bicycles and better access to the riverfront.  Following a presentation by planners on the feasible design alternatives and their impacts, there will be public comment taken and questions answered.

The public can access the 5 p.m. meeting at www.dot.ny.gov/363gateway and click the videoconference link.  Residents can also join by phone by calling 518-549-0500 and enter access code 171-935-9848.

Comments on the project can also be sent to the DOT by February 12.  Comment forms can be found on the project website or emailed to the project manager at 363gateway@dot.ny.gov.
