New York Roads - NY 352
This part of NY 352 is a short connector route in Elmira, the remnant of NY 14 when that route headed outside town to use the Horseheads Bypass. When NY 17 came through as the Southern Tier Expressway and took over the Bypass, NY 14 went back to its old alignment, leaving NY 352 to fill in the rest (it extends westward as well). North/east of 17, 352 continues as Chemung CR 1, which once ran west into NY 17 as part of an offset interchange (EB off/WB on were to Jerusalem Hill Rd./CR 1, and WB off/EB on were to Water Street, which is now 352 East). All photos on this page were taken eastbound, which is thus not the route NY 14 once followed - that would be Church St., which carries NY 352 West (Church and Water are partly one-way).
Old-style NYSDOT mileage marker, with the route number larger and digits widely spaced.
The TO WEST 17 probably dates from when NY 17 took over the Horseheads Bypass, and the arrow looks new (using arrows beneath TO assemblies is a recent practice in New York).
Unusual signs at the NY 17 interchange. West Ramp Roadway is a fancy name for "how to get onto the freeway," while Jerusalem Hill points NY 17 EB traffic up CR 1 (NY 352 ends just across the interchange at the westbound on/off ramps). The last photo is on the page because I can always argue the LGS is on 352, and NY 17 has enough photos.
