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.

Exit 3 has been showing up on maps since the 1960s (pictured left). Historical pictures of Wolf Road (top right) and Computer Drive (bottom right) reveal the evolution of the area since then.
