40 years later, results

Resident’s letters show decades-long struggle for Glenridge Road railroad bridge construction

— Former Glenville Supervisor Wayne Wagner in a letter to Senator Farley expressed the frustration for delays on the project, which were once again delayed.

“The correspondence between you and Fred Ross … reminded me of just how long-standing a problem this is,” Wagner said. “The Town of Glenville has been told on many occasions since the 1960’s that the overpass on Glenridge Road will be eliminated in the ‘near future.’ Yet, all of these deadlines have come and one. Our concern is that the next target date of 2004 will also come and go with nothing having been accomplished.”

Now, over 40 years later with the construction of the project underway, Ross is breathing a sigh of relief and a smile.

“I’m 94 years old, maybe I will live to see the results,” said Ross.
