City of Binghamton, New York

Current Projects

The City of Binghamton takes on several improvement projects each year to strengthen our community’s health, safety, and aesthetics. The improvements vary from park enhancements to street reconstruction to sewer separation, and they are often funded by federal and state sources. Most city coordinated projects (some are coordinated by other agencies such as NYSDOT) are executed by contracts, which are overseen by the Engineering Department. The street Mill and Pave program is carried out in-house, and is overseen by the Public Works Department.

Federally Funded Projects

Federally Funded Projects, which are funded by the Federal-aid transportation program, provide us with the opportunity to maintain, rehabilitate, reconstruct, expand and otherwise improve our highway and bridge network. The successful partnership between federal, state and local agencies helps ensure that our residents, businesses, and visitors have a safe, efficient, balanced and environmentally sound transportation system that meets the needs of the traveling public, while promoting and supporting economic growth.

Most of this work is coordinated through the Binghamton Metropolitan Transportation Study (BMTS), a regional transportation planning agency. All project selection and funding allocation is determined by consensus of the members, and the BMTS region includes not only the urban core of Binghamton, Johnson City, and Endicott, but also suburban areas stretching from the Village of Owego to Chenango Bridge, Conklin, and Kirkwood. BMTS offers a range of regional transportation documents and reports for review.

Residents are encouraged to stay informed of the activity of this important planning agency, which represents one of the most important funding streams for local infrastructure work.

Traffic Signal Removal Studies

A number of traffic signals will be studied for removal, as the volume of traffic may no longer warrant the use of expensive to maintain traffic signals. In ongoing efforts to keep public works assets as inexpensive to maintain as possible, the City will remove as many traffic signals as safely possible by following the removal procedure set out by ITE guidelines and the City Traffic Board
