ALBANY, N.Y. - In anticipation of the upcoming July 4th holiday, free coffee and snacks will be available at the rest stop just north of Exit 9 on the Adirondack Northway.
For more than 25 years, free coffee has been provided in order to encourage drivers to stop and take a "safety break" from their holiday travels as they head to their vacation spots. This gives drivers an opportunity to stop, stretch their legs and take a few minutes to re-energize themselves during their trip.
Coffee, soda, bottled water, cookies and snacks are being provided by Albany County Assistance. Albany County Assistance is a non-profit public service communications team that assists stranded motorists and also works with local police and law enforcement officials to keep communities safe and to provide assistance during times of crisis.
The team is performing this public service the weekend of July 4th – July 7th to help generate public awareness of the team and also to raise funds for equipment, radios, flares, barricades, road cones and training materials.
Coffee and refreshments will be available starting around 9 a.m. on July 4th and continuing through about 5 p.m. on July 7th.
