Apart from regurgitating its original, inadequate announcement, over and over, RIOC failed to share any information on progress. The expensive but largely AWOL state agency under Governor Kathy Hochul may be operating out of its office in the Dominican Republic and unaware of any Main Street happenings.
Nevertheless, although the testing may indicate progress toward reopening the north cabin, all construction barriers remain in place. Long lines continue during restricted services.
