Manlius Bypass


This "Fictional Freeway" isn't a freeway per se, but is more like a "Fictional Expressway".  In the early 1970s, consideration was given to a new-location-routing of NY 92 to bypass Manlius and reduce traffic on the NY 5/NY 92 duplex near I-481.  There were no indications that this new routing was to be a freeway...instead, it likely would have become an at-grade expressway.  Either way, the proposal never got very far.

Fictional NY 92 recreates this expressway proposal, with a 4-lane expressway routing from I-481 just north of Jamesville Rd eastward to existing NY 92 near Oran (southeast of Manlius in the Town of Pompey).


Map will be part of a future update.
