Long Description:
This station is a NY Department of Transportation standard disk, located on a bridge headwall at the junction of NY Route 311 and NY Route 164, in Patterson, NY:

IN THE TOWN OF PATTERSON, THE STATION IS AT THE NORTHEAST INTERSECTION
OF NEW YORK STATE ROUTE 311 AND NEW YORK STATE ROUTE 164 AND ABOUT
1.4 MILES NORTHEAST OF INTERSTATE 84.

THE STATION IS AN ALUMINUM DISK SET IN THE SOUTH END OF A CONCRETE
HEADWALL, IT IS 5.8 FEET EAST OF NEW YORK STATE ROUTE 311 EDGE OF
PAVEMENT, 20.1 FEET NORTH OF UTILITY POLE NYSEG230 9535 AND 131.5
FEET SOUTH OF UTILITY POLE NYT 73 NYSEG A 9537.

The description is accurate, and the mark was located in good condition. Parking a vehicle here is practically impossible as there are no shoulders to pull off on. However, there is a place to pull off about 200 ft. east on Rt. 164 on the left (north) side of the road. This intersection can be a busy traffic area, use caution.

This station is still relatively 'new', and therefore not loggable at the Geocaching site at this time, even though it has a NGS PID.
