NY 5

NY 5 has freeway segments in the Buffalo, Syracuse, and Utica areas. In Buffalo it includes the Skyway and has mileposts that begin at the Erie county line. Recently, there has been ocassional talk of tearing down the Skyway and replacing the freeway with a surface boulevard. In Syracuse, NY 5 was planned to continue past its stubs on each end to Auburn and I-81/I-481; the mileposts reflect only the freeway mileage. In Utica, NY 5 follows the north-south arterial (NY 12) and I-790.
