History:











* NY 5S originally began in Oneida and overlapped NY 365 to Rome, NY 69 from Rome to Yorkville, and NY 5A through Yorkville to downtown Utica. The western terminus was truncated to Utica in the early 1940s.
* At the eastern end, NY 5S originally extended to downtown Schenectady but was truncated to its current location as a result of the construction of I-890 during the 1970s and 1980s.
* Expressway replaced two lane section from downtown Utica to Frankfort in the early 1970s. Super-2 replaced two lane section from Frankfort to Mohawk in the early 1990s.
* NY 5S's alignment through the village of Ilion was changed around 1970 as part of an urban renewal project. The alignment shifted one block north from Main St. to Clark St.
* A portion of NY 5S west of Fort Hunter carried I-90/Thruway westbound traffic while Thruway bridges over Schoharie Creek were rebuilt following a bridge collapse that killed ten people in April 1987.
