History:



In the 1930s, NY 181 was originally aligned from Clayton (NY 12) to Theresa (NY 37) by way of Jefferson CR 181 and NY 411. The more recent NY 181 alignment was assigned in 1960, but was dropped three years later out of concerns motorists would confuse it with I-81 which was being built nearby about the same time.
Replaced By: NY 342, Jefferson CR 129
