Emergency Call Boxes Along Adirondack Northway Reactivated

Plattsburgh, NY – For the past seven years, if you had a problem while traveling on the Adirondack Northway, you were quite literally stuck. There is no cell phone service for nearly 60 miles, exits can be more than 10 miles apart and at times traffic can be sparse. An emergency call box system along the roadway didn't work. But state officials have announced that as of last weekend, those call boxes are now operational. WAMC's North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley has more.
