Better signage needed for people lost in ‘Kuckville Triangle’

Posted 12 March 2023 at 6:10 pm


NY Route 279 once ran from 5-Corners through Gaines to Route 18 in Carlton. New York turned 279 north of Ridge Road (Route 104) over to Orleans County and removed State signage.

This creates a “Kuckville Triangle” for visitors and fisherpeople lost in the Black North country. Solution: County Tourism and / or Highway can make small “Old Rte 279” markers with arrows sending outsiders down the correct roads. This is especially important before coming fishing derbies and the April 2024 eclipse.
