The new highway will be known as Donald Hicks Dew Drive in honor of the Die-molding Corp. founder.

If negotiations by the township for- purchase of a right-of-way next to the West shore railroad are successful, the road will eventually be continued west to downtown Canastota where it would hook in with Peterboro Street (Route 13) near the vacant Buyea store.
