SARANAC LAKE — The village is in for a busy construction season this year as several public Downtown Revitalization Initiative projects funded through a $10 million award the village received from the state in 2018 are kicking off or nearing completion through the spring, summer and fall.

Community Development Director Jamie Konkoski said the village eliminated many of the barriers to construction that held up work last summer — getting easements, relocating utility poles and obtaining permits from the state Department of Transportation.
