The county’s request to open town roads to local ATV traffic while the state Department of Environmental Conservation works to establish a primary multi-use trail is drawing some criticism from town board members. The board discussed the issue with County Legislator Kevin Acres at their meeting Wednesday, April 10, during Acres’ county government report to the town. Six towns, including Canton, are being asked to open their roads to allow ATV thru-traffic from Lewis County trails into St. Lawrence County and on to Franklin County.

Would you support ATV traffic on roads in your town?

Ogdensburg City Council gave official support to an Ogdensburg-Prescott bicycle ferry Monday following a visit from Canadian officials. Officials said the ferry would cater to bicyclists and pedestrians with attempts to cash in on the booming bicycle tourism business.
