BRIDGING THE FUTURE: Exploring the bridges project impact on UTICA

Back on the map: East-end bridge brings change to Utica's 776 residents

(Continued)

UTICA —

Dorman said the Port isn’t the commercial zone that will impact Utica. As River Ridge continues to develop, he said it will play a key role in keeping Utica and its residents prosperous.

“River Ridge has a beautiful development there,” Dorman said. “It’s very well-maintained and top class. We want Utica to be a part of River Ridge and their development. We want this whole area to shine because I think really, with the jobs and businesses that are coming it, it’s going to bring a big influx of people.”

Snelling said he thinks it’s still too early to tell exactly what’s going to happen to his small town. But Dorman said the bridge means big things for Utica, whether it’s ready for it or not.

“This will probably put Utica on the map with this bridge coming through,” Dorman said. “We’ve gotten more publicity in the last couple of years because the bridge crosses right through the town. People will get a birds-eye view of Utica as we develop our corridors and infrastructure. We’re real restrictive on what we bring in here.

“I think we can keep our atmosphere. At least, I’m hopeful we can, that’s our main goal.”
