Public Meeting Presents Business Park Road Extension Project

Dec 19, 2016

AKWESASNE - On Tsiothóhrha/December 15, 2016 the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe's Department of Planning and Infrastructure (P&I) held a public meeting to present construction plans for the Business Park Road Extension Project, which will connect the roadway from State Route 37 to McGee Road. The road project is tentatively planned for 2018, with last week's presentation providing an opportunity for local residents to view the plans and provide input. Individual homeowners and representatives from the Akwesasne Tourism Working Group attended the meeting and provided productive feedback, such as; the need for sidewalks, bicycle lanes and street lights. The design will incorporate those safety elements and others, like turn lanes and pedestrian cross walks. Pictured are (from left) P&I Construction Manager Brent Herne who gave an overview of the road extension project to tribal member and NYSDOT-worker Vernon "Pooch" White. Individuals interested in viewing the final plans can contactCapital Projects Manager Colleen Thomas at (518) 358-4205, or stop by the Planning & Infrastructure Office, 12 Gray Street, at the old Fire Station in Akwesasne.
