State DOT to hold Route 85 expansion press conference

The New York State Department of Transportation will hold a press conference on Wednesday, Feb. 21, at 9 a.m. in Bethlehem Town Hall to award a contract for construction of the Slingerlands Route 85 extension.

The project includes building a new two-lane highway and three roundabouts at an estimated cost of close to $15 million,

The construction, expected to take more than one year to complete, should ease traffic congestion in the New Scotland Road corridor of Slingerlands.

Officials hope to break ground this spring.
