"YES-11" GROUP SAYS "I-98" IS A BOONDOGGLE--John Casserly, a member of an activist group opposed to the construction of a four-lane interstate highway across Northern New York, favoring instead upgrades along the US Route 11 corridor says the belief that job generators will be attracted to the North Country if the four-lane is built, is unsustainable.
