Defunct gas station will come to life again

13 Jan

The long-vacant gas station at Five Mile Line and Ridge will finally come to life again.

A new Express Mart will be moving into that defunct Mobil gas station on Ridge Road at the corner of Five Mile Line. I was very excited to see the news in the local paper a few days ago, and I followed up with Webster Town Supervisor Ron Nesbitt to get some more details.

According to Nesbitt, the Express Mart will include a gas station and some sort of coffee house, like a Tim Horton’s or Starbucks, but exactly which one has not yet been finalized. The project has already received preliminary approval from the Planning Board and should get final authorization at this coming Tuesday night’s meeting. Construction could begin as early as this spring.

As what about all the traffic the new station will create on an already busy Ridge Road?  Nesbitt told me that Monroe County and the State of New York are planning some immediate improvements to that intersection, but most improvements to Ridge Road will not happen until at least 2014.
