Let construction season continue. There is a long stretch of Route 9 that will be getting a makeover which means lane closures through Malta and part of Saratoga. The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) will begin resurfacing that part of the roadway starting today.
Driving in the Capital Region most of my life, I had no problem with roundabouts or as we called them growing up, Latham Circle. You see that was the only one we had and it worked very well. Everyone seemed to know what to do and traffic flowed pretty smoothly through that area. Well, a few years ago the roundabout game changed in my opinion.
Thousands of jobs are coming to Saratoga County because there are plans to build another semi-conductor fabrication plant in Malta. GlobalFoundries announced that it will begin building the plant at its Fab 8 campus. This project will bring thousands of jobs with the construction and infrastructure of the plant.
