changes are coming!
2018 will bring road construction to Watkins Glen. The State Department of Transportation will be working hard this spring and fall to do a complete overhaul of State Route 14 and the sidewalks on Franklin Street through the village of Watkins Glen. Road construction can present challenges for businesses and visitors, but with the right information, proper coordination, and strategic planning, local businesses can not only endure, but prosper through this process.
The Watkins Glen Area Chamber of Commerce has a plan to lead our businesses through this time. While road construction can be challenging at times, the end result will be very rewarding - for our businesses, for our community, and for our region. On this page, we will share information and updates about the project, including a survival guide for local businesses, pedestrian passports and shopping promotions, project timelines, and more!
