All 27 service areas are being redeveloped in a $450 million project with Empire State Thruway Partners. The project is funded through a public-private partnership and no toll or tax dollars are being used for construction.

Customers can learn more about the redevelopment project on the Thruway Authority’s website dedicated to the project and its developments. Customers can view a project map, photo gallery and renderings and more information about the planned amenities and services.
