Nov 01, 2001 — Last week consultants for the North Country Transportation Study announced their findings after a year and a half of research. The study recommends an East-West highway across the North Country along Route 11. St. Lawrence, Lewis, and Franklin County leaders have been effusive in their support of the results. The so-called "rooftop highway" is what they've wanted for decades. David Sommerstein reports the areas that already have a four-lane highway see the plan as a backbone for other projects.
