A major thoroughfare in Plattsburgh may be getting a facelift.
South Catherine Street has been the source of complaints for years, due to its many potholes and uneven pavement. Now, it looks like the city may have the go ahead to tear up, and then repair the mile stretch of road from Perry Bridge to South Peru Street.
The city is just waiting on a grant of $8 million from state and federal funding to start work. While the rehab may make drivers happy, at least one business owner is concerned.
"I mean if they're out on that part for even two, three, four, five weeks-- that's a major concern. I may have to lay people off," said Steve Lashway, who owns a local business.
"As far as when we would start, it depends on when we get money. If we get some funding assistance, we're ready to go; we could as soon as this year. But there's no guarantee until we get funding," said Kevin Farrington, the city engineer.
According to Lashway, it could take two years for the repairs to be complete.
