Priority One | Infrastructure
A vexing obstacle for Syracuse, and other cities like it across the nation, is the challenge of maintaining 20th century infrastructure that is often at the end of its useful life. Roads and bridges are but the most obvious examples of infrastructure systems in dire need of repair and modernization. The hidden nature of underground infrastructure, like water and sewer lines, has led to decades of deferred maintenance enabled by relative obscurity.
The Syracuse i-team, under the direction of former Mayor Stephanie A. Miner, worked to develop a series of initiatives to improve the city’s water and road infrastructure, as well as help departments better coordinate and communicate infrastructure projects. Learn more about our initiatives and the challenges they address in our final report below.
