The Cuomo administration is planning a network of 11 "welcome centers" across the state, as part of an on-going campaign to promote state products and tourism along New York's major highways.
And it appears at least one of those centers is planned for the Thruway in Greene County south of Albany. According to the Times-Union, bids will be taken next month on a 10-thousand square foot facility to be built inside the cloverleaf of the northbound exit to the existing New Baltimore travel plaza.
Construction is already underway on a similar facility in Grand Island, near Buffalo, and near the Thousand Islands Bridge along I-81.
