The present Route 11 was for many years a series of Indian trails north and south through Cicero from Pennsylvania to the Thousand Islands. Part of it was called the Salt Road in 1812. In 1846 the first toll plan road in the United States was built. It was 16.5 miles long and went from Central Square to Syracuse right through Cicero. The stage was the only means of transportation until replaced by the trolley line built in 1909. The trolley to South Bay brought visitors to the area around Oneida Lake. Regular boat excursions met the trolley for trips to Frenchman’s Island, a popular vacation spot. The trolley was used until 1932. The tracks were torn up and South Bay Road built, also known as the Trolley Bed Road.
