Business Loop 81

Business Loop 81 is the planned designation for the current I-81 alignment between Exits 16A and 29 in Syracuse and its northern suburbs when I-81 in downtown Syracuse is converted into a grade level roadway. Construction is currently planned to begin in 2022 and completed sometime around 2027.

Recommendation: Instead of the Business Loop designation, we suggest designating the southern segment (I-481 to NY 5) as part of an extended NY 281 and keeping the Interstate designation for the northern segment (I-690 to I-481) as I-681
