The state approved a green light arrow for traffic at the intersection of Jefferson Road and Marketplace Drive last month. The restaurant will be set up there, where Joe’s Crab Shack once stood. No word yet on when the new restaurant will open.
The earlier arrival of a cold front has shifted the wind direction in our area into the east and northeast allowing drier and much cooler air to work its way in back into Western New York and the Finger Lakes.
