Oneida Square Roundabout Approved
The controversial Oneida Square roundabout has been approved. In a 7 to 2 vote, the Utica Common council gave the go ahead for the roughly $2 million project. It will utilize 85 percent federal, 10 percent state and 5 percent city dollars– but all the money will be spent by the city first and reimbursed later.
One just hopes it does not prove to be as confusing as the one pictured here.
The Utica Observer Dispatch reported that 2 council members, James Zecca and Frank Vescera, voted against the change saying that area business owners were not sufficiently advised as to how the roundabout would affect their operations.
