FRANKFORT, N.Y. -- Higby Gold has officially broken ground on a planned complex called Adirondack Food and Fuel.
Golden shovels went in the ground to mark the occasion.
It's located at 1 Country Mile Road in the town of Frankfort.
Adirondack Food and Fuel will feature a convenience store and food court, along with a 10-pump fuel station with three diesel lanes.
The project has been under development for a while now. When fully operational, it will employ up to 35 people with jobs.
“The one thing we did is we added a cat scale, and there are not many of them in the local area. you have to go to Syracuse or Fultonville. So, anyone headed east weighing their axels to stay legal will hopefully come here to use the scales and to get their ticket and to buy some fuel,” said CEO John Dillon.
A feasibility study found 23,000 vehicles per day will pass through it.
