Syracuse, a city of 145,000, is New York’s fifth most populous city. Situated at the intersection of I-81 and I-90, it is the hub of Central New York. Two other interstates –I-690 and I-481 – help link Syracuse with its suburbs and provide routes for commuting workers.
Interstate 81 serves as a truck route between Canada and Pennsylvania. One northbound section, known as the Viaduct, carries about 80,000 vehicles every day. It has an accident rate more than three times the New York State average.
I-81 and the other major highways through Syracuse play an important role in the region’s economy, but they’re often the scene of motor vehicle accidents. The 2012 annual report of the Syracuse Police Department states that in 2012 Syracuse saw 5 fatal crashes and 11 crashes classified as serious out of a total of 6,457 motor vehicle accidents.
