You know that portion of road downtown that's parallel to 5S that nobody ever drives on anymore (because they have 5S?) That's Jay St and it is now closed for good as part of the 5S/Oriskany Blvd Safety Project. Actually, I used to use that as a quick way to bypass backed up traffic, but I do recall it being a confusing junction at Genesee St. As depicted in the picture above, the street is only closed for a couple of blocks between Genny and 2nd St.
