DOT design about 20% done

Yesterday's Cortland Standard has more on the perpetually delayed New York State Department of Transportation maintenance facility. Back in February 2004 the Village of Dryden annexed land on its northern edge to accomodate plans for the project, which needed to have water available. Now Ron Moore, interim village Superintendent of Public Works, reports that the state will build a salt storage facility there first. A DOT spokesman reports that "design plans for the remainder of the project are 20 percent complete at this time," though the salt shed plans may be at 50%.

The state bought the property at the corner of Ellis Drive and Enterprise Drive for $365,000, and has since invested $1 million to extend a water line there. Dryden Mutual Insurance is using that line, at least, but it's not a lot to show for three years. Posted by simon at January 16, 2007 7:37 AM in ,
