State funding for Whiteface Mountain Veterans’ Memorial Highway

Governor Cuomo announced the state will provide $12 million in funding to repair the Whiteface Mountain Veterans’ Memorial Highway, in the Adirondacks.

The eight-mile scenic roadway is open from mid-May to mid-October each year and is traveled yearly by more than 28,500 vehicles as well as numerous cyclists and hikers going to Whiteface Mountain.

Governor Cuomo said, “The North Country is truly one of the most scenic and special places on the planet, and today the State is continuing to support the region and help draw tourists and outdoor enthusiasts to come experience all the Adirondacks have to offer.”

The Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA), which maintains the highway, has not been able to acquire the resources to undertake comprehensive repairs.
