840 Intersection...

We couldn't have said it any better than Strikeslip at Fault Lines.

Obviously Dan Gilligan, retiring Superintendent of New Hartford Central School is revving up for a new position after he retires from the District...Director of Economic Development in the Town of New Hartford. Then there's Town Supervisor Earle Reed, who today announced that he will be running for a second term because he has so many unfinished projects...God help us!

We also agree with Strikeslip that if The Hartford is pulling out of New Hartford just because the intersection that has been deemed to be unsafe is not built; than so be it. Perhaps instead of rushing this project through before any of the taxpayers in New Hartford had a chance to find out what was happening, they should have taken their time and involved the public.

Strikeslip you said it well...disgusted is the first thing that comes to our mind as well.

CNY Snakepit has more over here.

another fine mess you've gotten us into...Took a ride over woods hwy today..fine road there building there.. comes out to woods hwy then to 5 or clark mills rd.. 5 would probably need a light but what's one more on 5. Better than making 840 another arterial..Just because they share part of the towns name doesn't give the wright to be on the roadbuilding committee..If they want to go ..see ya...Take the town board with you..

What about the road that was to be built through Twin Orchards that was to connect to Woods Highway? Is that dead now? A lot cheaper to build you use the existing exit off 840 (Middle Settlement Rd Exit).
Why does the exit have to be at The Hartfords front door?

Waterboy,

We have been told that the Yager's (owners of Twin Orchards) are so disgusted with the way this whole deal has been done that they are unwilling to talk to the people involved with this scheme (Adler, Reed & Gilligan)and they are unwilling to sell any more of their property.
