$22m reconstruction to start this spring.
The project will improve traffic operations and reduce delays and accidents by reconstructing Route 201 as an elevated roadway or "flyover."
The new flyover will consist of two northbound and two southbound lanes which will connect Route 434 in Vestal with Route 17 in Johnson City.
"Route 201 has fast become a critical link between two of the Binghamton area's busiest highways, Route 17 and Route 434," Governor Pataki said.
"These improvements will improve the safety of the traveling public, reduce costly delays, and provide an easier, more convenient commute for the people of Broome County."
The Route 201 project will begin on the Route 201 bridge spanning the Susquehanna River between Vestal and Johnson City and extend to the Route 201 bridge spanning Grand Avenue in Johnson City.
In addition, new and existing noise barriers will be installed or upgraded.
Construction is scheduled to begin this spring with completion anticipated in December 2005.
