Franklin County Officials Unveil Ten Year Roads Plan

A tentative ten year road plan is being introduced for Franklin County. Two of those roads are Old Lake Colby Road and county Route 55, between Gabriels and Bloomingdale. Also being looked at Route 60. Three miles will be resurfaced with 1.5 inches of pavement. The first portion of the county plan involves 13 county routes — 4, 5, 7, 8, 25, 27, 32, 35, 42, 47, 49, 55 and 60 — and one bridge in Malone. Depending on the road, construction will either include shimming — the filling of potholes and leveling of the road surface with asphalt — resurfacing or replacing culverts.
