Geddes, N.Y. - Gov Cuomo announced today that the New York State Fair Orange Lot Access Improvement Project has been completed.
The new Eastbound Ramp on I-690 will eliminate the need for a Traffic Signal on the Highway During the Fair. Cuomo said. "These new road access improvements enhance the great work we have already done at the New York State Fairgrounds, making it one of the state's biggest tourist attractions and ensuring that when the State Fair returns it will be stronger than ever before."
As part of the project, the State Department of Transportation constructed a new I-690 eastbound on-ramp bridge, ensuring that a temporary traffic signal on the highway will not be required during future events at the State Fair. The new I-690 eastbound on-ramp bridge also accommodates pedestrians with a 10-foot wide pedestrian walkway that will help ease the journey to and from the Orange lot.
