Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Prospect Mountain Project will make parts of Rt 17 and 1-81 brighter.

Construction is already underway.

The DOT is putting up additional permanent lighting in areas.

One of which is known as "Kamikazee Curve", where 81 south and route 17 merge.

This lighting is being installed as a safety feature for construction workers and motorists.

The entire highway project is set to start next summer though a lack of state funding may delay it to 2012.
