ALBANY, N.Y. — I-87 between Albany and the border now has more to offer professional drivers in the way of traveller services.
After a year-and-half of construction, the northbound side of the new High Peaks rest area is slated to open at the end of this month with the southbound side following six weeks later.
The rest areas now feature expanded parking, rest areas for truckers, travel and tourism information and picnic areas. Space will also be provided for the New York State Police, the Immigration and Naturalization Service, the U.S. Border Patrol and vendors.
The new buildings are designed in the Adirondack “Great Camp” style, with the total cost of the project for both sites ringing in at US$14 million.
