Relocated NY 298


In the early 1970s, and also again in the mid-70s, there was a proposal for a 4-lane at-grade expressway relocation of NY 298 running from Carrier Circle to NY 31 near Bridgeport.  This expressway would have been an extension of the then-proposed North-South Arterial (a precursor to today's Thompson Rd), providing service to the industrial areas near Carrier Circle and also as a way to avoid Cicero Swamp and the occasional flooding along existing NY 298 through the swamp.

Fictional NY 298 is a recreation of this expressway proposal, running from Carrier Circle northeasterly to NY 31 east of Bridgeport.


Map will be part of a future update.
