Kasprzak said that with the growth of Plattsburgh International Airport and the industrial section in the South End of the city, that portion of South Catherine Street is of great importance.
“The council and I have made this project our priority since first taking office, and I am hopeful the construction phase of this project will begin next year,” he said.
“I appreciate the public’s patience all these years while we worked with Department of Transportation officials to finalize the appropriate funding.”
Farrington said that if the funding comes through by the end of this year, work can begin in the spring.
He expects the job to take about two years.
“If we get good weather and all the stars align perfectly, we might be able to get it done in one year, but it’s probably going to be a two-year project,” he said.
