Bypass concern hogwash

It’s hard to believe Montgomery County will not contribute to the study for a new highway from Fonda to Johnstown.

Why should Fulton County be concerned about Fultonville and Fonda? After all, these two villages are located in Montgomery County. Montgomery County’s concern about trucks not going to the truck stop in Fultonville is a lot of hogwash. The reason lots of trucks get off the Thruway is to stop at the truck stops. Properly placed signs would let others know about these truck stops and other businesses.

Fulton County should be trying to alleviate the traffic problems on Route 30A near Route 29; it seems the way to fix this section is to terminate the bypass connector at Route 29 near Harrison Avenue with an extension to the industrial park.

Also, why isn’t the state of New York the principal government body behind this project?
