WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (WETM) — The Village of Watkins Glen has partnered with the New York State DOT to complete a large project downtown. Some of the plans being executed within in this project include a road repaving throughout the downtown area, and the wrapping of utility boxes.
Elmira’s JH Design is spearheading the wrapping of the utility boxes. Each wrapping includes maps of the area along with historical information, such as facts about the local wineries, and the history of road racing. A total of 7 boxes were wrapped.
The purpose of the wrapping is to add color and character to the downtown area, while informing visitors about what the community has to offer.
