Route 9 in Clifton Park continues to grow. With it comes some new configurations for the heavy traffic problem. As the town addresses those issues, a new building may be going up on Route 9 where the old Giffy's Bar-B-Q once stood.
There are Stewart's Shops all over Upstate New York. Some of them have been renovated and others have not. There is one in Saratoga County that has been well overdue for an upgrade. It will be renovated, but it will also be in a new, bigger location.
There are thirty-seven acres that are slated to be sold in a prime area along Route 9/Loudon Road in Cohoes. It's a peculiar area because even though Oreshan Farm has been there for years, housing developments around it have been booming. There are plans to build more housing at that farm, but a lawsuit says, "not so fast".
If you travel along Route 9 in Halfmoon, you know that there has been a lot of work being done on the old Romano's restaurant and more recently a meeting place for the NXIVM cult. This was a cult that had headquarters in the Albany area and the heads of NXIVM lived in Halfmoon. It will be a brand new restaurant and we now know when it will open.
I live in the Town of Halfmoon and I love it. We have so many local restaurants and shops and now a developer is going to make an already popular shopping plaza into something he calls a "walking community".
Let construction season continue. There is a long stretch of Route 9 that will be getting a makeover which means lane closures through Malta and part of Saratoga. The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) will begin resurfacing that part of the roadway starting today.
