Politicians back new I-81 exit
A proposed Interstate 81 interchange in Cicero is getting some support from federal and state officials. "This could take years, but things are starting to move forward - slowly," said Cicero Supervisor Chester Dudzinski. Rep. James Walsh, R-Onondaga, will seek some federal funding for the project in the 2008 federal budget, said Dan Gage, Walsh's chief of staff.
"We can do our best to make a case, but it's very, very early in the process," Gage said. "We won't make the determination as to whether it gets funding. That will be done by the committees and we are in the minority now. All we can do is do our best to make the case and see how it goes."
