After a major push from Senator Charles Schumer, the Federal Highway Administration and New York State Department of Transportation are set to unlock $1.8 million in previously secured federal funds for the City of Utica's Harbor Point Project.
I get SO frustrated when traveling up Rt. 5 (Auert Ave.) past the North Utica Shopping Center. As I approach Burger King, staying in the right hand lane like everyone else...some jerk flies by us in the left turn only lane and goes straight, cutting everyone off who patently waited through a signal or two. To be fair, motorists who are unfamiliar with the area will signal and politely merge over.
