Exit 3 of the Northway: 50 Years in the Making

In 1968, Exit 3 was touted as the next step in cementing Wolf Road’s gold-star status, and they had already begun printing the exit on maps (pictured below). Businesses with office space on Wolf Road were blossoming as the 2-lane dirt road transformed to the modern, 4-lane commercial corridor it is today. Now, more than 50 years later, the dream of better accessibility for Albany/Colonie is about to become reality as Exit 3 is “ahead of schedule.” The new exit is nearly ready to ferry commuters directly to Albany International Airport and should be doing so before the snow flies. Exit 3 will not only provide a direct link to the airport, but will greatly ease congestion on Wolf Road making business, shopping and leisure that much more accessible.

The Anderson Group is proud to have been a part of the history of the Capital Region, and especially the Wolf Road corridor in Albany & Colonie.  We are excited for what this will new infrastructure will bring to our tenants and our community.

To learn more about the construction, check out this recent article about Exit 3 from the Times Union.
