Cunningham said that nothing is in proposal form, and the feasibility study is a very preliminary process to see if it is even a possibility for Bethlehem at this time.
"The Thruway is basically saying, 'We're OK with the study, but we're not sure about some of your conclusions,'" he said. "We have to look at this a lot more, and we have talk with the Federal Highway Authority to see if there is anything to prevent this."
The supervisor described the project as being in "incremental studies," and that problems must be mitigated before moving to the next step. Cunningham stressed that nothing is finalized at this point and all plans are preliminary.
