A historical look at I-81 and its impact from the Syracuse New Times: https://www.syracusenewtimes.com/hig...interstate-81/

Technically, I-81 was a part of Urban Renewal, which many times selectively went through neighborhoods of color in many cities.

Also, what is interesting in this article are the comments of W.D. Rumsey. From the article above: "Many residential owners outside of the 15th Ward were in fear that their property values might lessen if a southern migrant worker was to move into their area. W.D. Rumsey, the East Side housing chairman told The Post-Standard that he was “definitely against Negroes living in white neighborhoods. The value of property goes down when they move in.” When asked what he thought should be done to help individuals living in the 15th Ward, Rumsey added, “I am very much interested in a plan to help them out, but human nature is human nature and you’ve just got to accept it.”

However, here is an article from a 1953 issue of Jet Magazine that likely involves the same W.D. Rumsey: https://books.google.com/books?id=xU...racuse&f=false

So, I'm curious if that situation impacted his views later on in regards to the topic of relocating 15th Ward residents to other parts of the city/area due I-81's construction at the time or perhaps there were limits in terms of his interactions... A related newspaper archive from 1965 that includes Rumsey's wife in a meeting with an organization in DeWitt: https://newspaperarchive.com/syracus...-20-1965-p-23/ (By the way, this is the Mr. Warr in that 1965 article: Purdue Department of Physics and Astronomy: Robert E. Warr Mr. Warr was the first black person to serve on the Syracuse city school board(1966) and to the Common Council(1975))

It is a project that would take several years anyway. This is regardless of the direction of the project.

With that said, I think some would interested in the history behind the interstate and any updates that actually come out in terms of what direction the project is going in.
