Ground was broken on what will eventually becomea $212 million project to update the border crossing in Alexandria Bay.
It’s a five-year plan to widen the over 80-year-old crossing–taking it from nine lanes to 14. T
he entirety of the project, which includes removing amounts of rock, should be completed through two phases.
The first portion of the work will reportedly cost $90 million, but the second phase has yet to actually be approved by Congress.
