Southern Terminus: NY 98, Gaines
Northern Terminus: NY 18, Lakeside
Length: 8.76 miles (14.10 km)
Orientation: North-South
Counties: Orleans
Cities: None
Villages: None
Towns: Gaines, Carlton
Name(s): Gaines Rd., Waterport Rd.
Recommendation:





Decommissioning the current NY 279 alignment and moving the designation to the New York section of the Bennington Bypass in Rensselaer County. The relocated NY 279 would then match the VT 279 designation already in place in Vermont. NY 279 is not signed north of NY 104 (which is maintained by Orleans County) except for markers at the northern terminus on NY 18 and drivers must make two turns in Waterport to follow the designation. Reassurance signs had been posted until the early 2010s.
