The New York State Thruway Authority celebrates a significant milestone in its extensive $450 million service area redevelopment initiative with the reopening of the Port Byron Service Area in Cayuga County.

Closed since March 2023 for renovations, the rest stop, situated between exits 41 (Waterloo) and 40 (Weedsport) on Interstate 90 east, now features modern amenities including Burger King and Dunkin’ restaurants, an Applegreen convenience store, a dog walking area, and a private nursing space.


Future plans include the installation of four high-speed electric vehicle chargers.

This reopening marks the halfway point of the Thruway Authority’s project, which aims to modernize 27 service areas. To date, 14 service areas have been reopened, providing updated facilities and amenities that align with the Thruway’s commitment to safety and reliability as it celebrates its 70th anniversary.
