Fall Begins

The leaves hit peak over this past week giving spectacular sites.  Weekend traffic slightly increased as “leaf peepers” took to the streets.

During the week, the large Niagara Prince rolled through town.  The ship usually passes through Whitehall this time of year giving canal area tours and has a cabin capacity of roughly 93.

Also on the water, the Lois McClure was moored by the Skenesborough Museum.  The Lois McClure is an 1862 replica canal sailing boat.  It arrives and moores for a few days each year and has been a frequent stop for tourists and field trip destination for schools.

The Saunders / Division / Broadway railroad bridge / tunnel work continues.  Division Street was dug up this week and new drainage installed along the south edge of the road.  A concrete spreading rig was craned in a few weeks ago and several times the scissoring cement truck’s spout has been seen on Broadway, forcing one lane traffic.

Stewarts construction work seems nearly complete.  On friday (October 8th, 2010) the store resumed pumping gas from the new tanks.  The new digital gas display sign is now lit, and the canopy has received the new trim featured on many area Stewarts.
