The Thruway Authority today announced that a public information meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, January 3, 2018 from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. to discuss the bridge rehabilitation and safety improvement project to the bridge carrying Whiskey Hill Road (County Route 107) over the Thruway in the Town of Waterloo, Seneca County.
