Whiteface Veteran’s Memorial Highway
Whiteface Veteran's Memorial Highway, one of the top scenic roadways in the U.S., takes visitors to the mountain's peak and 360-degree views of the Adirondack Park stretching into Vermont and Canada. Rifenburg Construction made this historic roadway accessible and functional, while retaining its unique significance. Rifenburg reconstructed the eight-mile highway (with an 8-10 percent grade) and selectively removed trees while protecting rare specimens. The project included replacement of culverts, pipe lining, ditch cleaning, repair and restoration of historic quarry stone walls, and installation of a new water supply line between the pump station and the top of the mountain.
