Part of Route 98 is renamed
Albany, N.Y.-Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a bill into law Tuesday, that would change the name of Route 98 to the Genesee and Orleans Veterans Memorial Highway.
The bill, sponsored by Assemblyman Steve Hawley, renames part of Route 98 that runs from the border of Genesee and Wyoming counties to the intersection that meets Lake Ontario State Parkway in Orleans County.
It is our duty as Americans to honor our heroic veterans and express our gratitude whenever possible, said Assemblyman Hawley in a statement. Creating the Genesee and Orleans Veterans Memorial Highway is another token of our appreciation for the sacrifices made by the men and women of our armed services.
