The New York State Thruway Authority has announced the reopening of the Clifton Springs Service Area on Tuesday after a recent modernization project. The service area is located on I-90 eastbound between the Manchester and Geneva exits and is part of a $450 million project to redevelop all the service areas along the Thruway.
The new Clifton Springs Service Area boasts of over 20,000 square feet, making it larger than the first three locations that have opened. It also features several amenities such as a playground area, outdoor seating, areas for pets, EV charges, and a farm market space.
Moreover, the service area has new restaurants that include Shake Shack, a Chick-Fil-A (opening date to be announced), a Starbucks drive-thru, Auntie Anne’s (opening date to be announced), an Applegreen Market Store, and Taste NY Food and Drink Products.
The reopening of the Clifton Springs Service Area follows the Iroquois, Indian Castle, Chittenango, and Junius Ponds service areas that also reopened after their respective modernization projects. The Port Byron Service Area is currently closed for construction, although fuel services will still be available during the construction period.
The modernization project is part of the Thruway Authority’s efforts to enhance travelers’ experience along the Thruway. The project aims to upgrade the service areas to provide a comfortable and convenient experience to the traveling public. The reopening of the Clifton Springs Service Area is a significant milestone in the project and a positive development for travelers along the Thruway.
