Whiteface Hwy. to get upgrade

Posted: Updated:
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. -

Improvements are on the way for the Whiteface Mountain Veterans Memorial Highway

The Wilmington road is a major North Country attraction, bringing tourists, cyclists, hikers and sightseers to the area.  But Governor Andrew Cuomo says it has been in rough condition for too long, with bumps, cracks and an outdated drainage system.

There is a meeting Wednesday night at the Whiteface Mountain Base Lodge to update the public on plans for the entire eight mile road.  Construction is set to start in the spring and continue through 2015.
