Some business advocates in the north country think that the best way to improve our lot up here is to build a four-lane interstate which, in some iterations, goes from Watertown to Plattsburgh.
"The rooftop highway," or Interstate 98, has been a decades-long goal.
But it faced another serious setback after the state diverted money meant to study I-98 and used it instead to improve the already-existing Route 11.
“It’s been studied,” DOT spokesman Michael R. Flick told our reporter, Martha Ellen. “The conclusions are close enough on the studies we’ve already had. Route 11 exists. It works and we’d like to make it work better.”
