Public opinion sought for reconstruction projects

TUPPER LAKE A public information meeting to discuss proposed highway reconstruction in the Village of Tupper Lake will be held Wednesday, Oct. 1 from 4-7 p.m. The meeting will be hosted by the New York State Department of Transportation and will take place in the basement of the Goff-Nelson Memorial Library, located at 41 Lake Street. Officials will discuss a proposal for reconstruction on State Routes 3 and 30. At a prior meeting, also hosted by the DOT, the Village sought to designate Lake Street as a State Route and also inquired about realigning the intersection of Route 3 and 30. The DOT is expected to present alternatives to Lake Street and Route 30 realignment projects at the Oct. 1 meeting. The project would begin south of Queen Street and continue north on Route 30, until splitting at the Route 30/Route 3 intersection. The project would end at Pleasant See PUBLIC MEETING, page 2 Avenue north of the intersection, and to the east it ends at McLaughlin Avenue. The proposal seeks to improve just over one mile of highway in the village, and to restore the roadways structural integrity. Additionally, the project includes safety, mobility and drainage improvements. The preliminary plans will be on display for public review between 4-5:30 p.m. At 5:30 p.m., officials will give a presentation highlighting the proposals main goals. Citizens are invited to ask questions and provide written comments regarding the project.
