Is it possible to pin a summary post in a long thread?

The question would be, who gets to write the summary?  :sombrero:

Actually for that particular thread I would challenge you to write something non-controversal  :bigass:
Or maybe @Rothman would be so kind...
There were a few posts in that thread which  give a nice summary on effects on through traffic, add  NYSDOT project timeline - and that's pretty much it.

Well, this might be a start:

... how many lanes is the replacement boluevard? How much money would replacing it cost vs the current project? And how crowded is I-81 through Syracuse now, as well as I-481?

Yes, that has all been discussed before... most of it at length. The replacement boulevard would be, to my knowledge, four lanes; the boulevard is somewhat cheaper than the viaduct replacement but both are expensive projects even by NY standards.

The viaduct is usually fine, traffic-wise, in my experience. Heading southbound, the transition from I-690 to I-81 is annoying because the curves are substandard and it drops to a single lane for a short span, but the overall volumes are manageable for a four-lane freeway. There are a few trouble spots on I-481 that could use widening, especially near I-690, but nothing like the traffic problems seen in larger cities.

No. Only threads can be pinned. The other posts are shown in the order the reader sets their preferences to, which by default is oldest to newest. If you are the OP of the thread you could edit a summary into your first post of the thread, but otherwise you're out of luck.
