In July, 2016 construction was underway on the Chenango St. Gateway Project, rebuilding a major gateway in the City of Binghamton. The $595,000 project improved a 0.6-mile stretch of Chenango St. with water and sewer improvements, new curbs and road surface between Bevier St. and the Port Dickinson line. The project was paid for through the 2016 bond. The project is the first street improvement project on Chenango St. since 2003, when the roadway was milled and paved. This main gateway corridor had never been reconstructed. Part of the project was to remove trolley tracks buried in the pavement, first installed in the late 1800s. The trolley tracks were utilized by the Triple Cities Traction Company, which in 1932 ended trolley service in Binghamton, shifting to buses.
