“A new economic impact study commissioned by the town of Salina shows that if I-81 becomes a grid rerouting traffic to Interstate 481, the financial loss would be between 5-15% for many businesses. Salina Supervisor Nick Paro continues to fight against the grid.
‘Keep the interstate going to the city of Syracuse. That’s the easiest solution,’ Paro said. ‘Why cause a problem when we already have … when everything’s working out well right now.’”
“Nick Paro, the new Republican supervisor in the town of Salina, has asked the whole Syracuse delegation to go back to Albany to ask for at least a temporary reprieve on tolls.

If done incorrectly, it will be our neighborhoods that suffer first and the most.
Elected officials in Syracuse’s northern suburbs are pushing back against the assertion that there’s county-wide consensus around the community grid replacement for the I-81 viaduct.
