History:
































































In its original form, NY 17 was nothing more than a long two-lane road stretching across the southern portion of the state from Lake Erie to the northern suburbs of New York City. NY 17 began in Westfield where NY 5 and NY 394 meet. From there, NY 17 followed what is now NY 394 to Mayville, NY 430 to Jamestown, and NY 394 to Steamburg. Between Steamburg and Salamanca, the original road goes into the Allegany Indian Reservation and remains intact and locally maintained. However, some sections in this area are closed off to traffic. In Salamanca, NY 17 picked up today's NY 417 and followed the length of the route to Painted Post. In Painted Post, NY 17 originally followed Hamilton, Pulteney, and Bridge Streets to Market St. in Corning. From Corning, NY 17 continued into Gibson, East Corning, and Big Flats along what is now NY 352. In Big Flats, NY 17 turned onto Main St. and continued along Big Flats Rd. (Chemung CR 64) to Horseheads. Through Horseheads, NY 17 followed its present course, albeit briefly, before duplexing with NY 13's old alignment on S. Main St. and Lake Rd. (Chemung CR 65) into Elmira. After a brief turn onto E. Water St., NY 17 continued along Chemung CR 60 and Tioga CR 60 to Waverly where the original alignment picked up what is now NY 17C. From Waverly, NY 17 followed NY 17C to Owego, then crossed the Susquehanna River before following NY 434's current alignment to Binghamton. From Binghamton to Kirkwood, NY 17 was co-signed with US 11 along its present course. From Kirkwood to Occanum, NY 17 followed its current alignment, then along Broome CR 28 to Deposit. Through Delaware and Sullivan Counties, NY 17 either followed or ran parallel close to its present course. Through Hancock, NY 17 followed present day NY 97 and NY 268. In Liberty and Monticello, NY 17 duplexed NY 52 and NY 42 respectively. In Orange County, NY 17 followed its present alignment to Goshen, then along NY 17M to Harriman where NY 17 turns south. The routing south of Harriman has pretty much gone unchanged.

The construction of the expressway sections began in the 1950's in Orange and Sullivan Counties. In the 1960's, the focus shifted west into Delaware and eastern Broome Counties. In the mid 1960's, the focus started to shift on the expressway sections west of Binghamton. By 1970, NY 17 was four-laned east of Owego. In the early 1970's, the Southern Tier Expressway (as it would be called) began to take shape. By the mid 1970's, the NY 17 designation had shifted to the new expressway which was nearing completion. The western terminus was also moved to the Pennsylvania line near Findley Lake. In 1980, work began to bypass NY 17 around Corning. The project would take 15 years to complete. In 1992, the Super-2 that made up the westernmost 25 miles of highway began to be twinned into a four lane divided highway. Work on that project wrapped in 1997, at which time, the westernmost 177 miles was eligible for interstate designation. On December 3, 1999, the I-86 designation was given to this stretch of highway. However, work was still needed to upgrade the rest of NY 17 to interstate standards.

In 2000, a diamond interchange was built in Lowman (Exit 57) to replace a signalized intersection. At the same time, new interchanges were built between Kirkwood and Windsor. That section would eventually be given the I-86 designation on May 1, 2006. In 2003, a 3/4 diamond interchange was built at the Kahler Rd. intersection. This upgrade allowed for the I-86 designation to be extended seven miles into Chemung County on May 13, 2004. From 2003 to 2007, an elevated roadway through the Village of Horseheads was built, eliminating a one mile stretch of at-grade and signalized intersections. The I-86 designation was extended east to Elmira in November 2007.

In 2004, a bill was proposed to rename the entire length of I-86 in memory of former U.S. Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan.

In 2008, work began to upgrade the section between Elmira and Chemung by removing at grade intersections and driveways. A new interchange (Exit 58) was built near the Chemung County Landfill and the project was completed in late 2012. Meanwhile, in Sullivan County, a bypass was built in Parksville eliminating additional at-grade intersections, including NY 17's last signalized intersection at Cooley Rd. (Sullivan CR 85).

At the present time, there are still several improvements that must be made, particularly east of Binghamton. However there are two significant hurdles that stand in the way of I-86 being able to be extended to Harriman. First is the Prospect Mountain (Kamikaze Curve) area in Binghamton which also involves the complete reconstruction of the interchange with I-81. Construction began in 2011 with upgrades to NY 17 west of the I-81 split and was completed in late 2015. Currently, the project is focused on rebuilding the I-81/NY 17 duplex heading south from downtown Binghamton with completion targeted for sometime in late 2020. The other major obstacle is ugrading the section in Hale Eddy in western Delaware County (Between Deposit and Hancock). That project is still in the preliminary stages with no timetable for construction to start.

Upon completion of the I-86 conversion, NY 17 will be truncated to the north-south section between the NJ Line and Harriman.

Recommendation:



With New York's plan to dissolve NY 17 west of Harriman once the entire expressway section is brought up to Interstate standards in favor of Interstate 86, we recommend realigning the northern end of non-expressway NY 17 along the current NY 17M. The section of NY 17 north of NY 17M would be reassigned as a southern extension of NY 32.
