Route 5S may get a new name

Local

It was a tragic accident back in November that claimed the life of Sgt. Jeremy VanNostrand as he was heading to work.  The accident happened near the Fonda Trooper’s Station on Rt. 5S in the town of Glenn.

Two lawmakers, Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara and Sen. George Amedore have put forth legislation to rename the section of the highway in front of the Trooper station.  The new name will be the Sgt. Jeremy J. VanNostrand Memorial Highway.
