Trucks would turn onto Route 224 from Route 13 and proceed to Route 228, and thence to Route 96 to Route 414 North. Communities impacted by this additional truck traffic include: Alpine Junction, Odessa, Mecklenburg, Trumansburg, Covert, Interlaken, Ovid, Fayette, and Seneca Falls.
“Trucks could alternatively take Route 224 through Odessa to connect with Route 14, then turning onto Route 414, additionally impacting the communities of Montour Falls, Watkins Glen, Hector, Valois, Lodi, and points North,” SLG says on its website.
