The long-discussed issue of improving road transportation across the North Country gets its next airing Jan. 30 in Canton at an information meeting hosted by the state Department of Transportation on their latest effort, the North Country Access Improvements Study.

This latest study, being generated by a Stakeholder Advisory Committee of village, town and county officials, business leaders and transportation professionals, is concentrating on ideas around improving U.S. Rt. 11 between Canton and Potsdam, possibly with bypass features for both villages.

As the state implements its “Raise the age Legislation,” 16-year-olds will no longer be housed in adult jail facilities. The state is considering St. Lawrence County’s old jail as a potential site to establish a juvenile detention center.

Would you like to see such a facility in St. Lawrence County?
