Although Exit 28 of the New York State Thruway in Fultonville was reopened this morning, several state highways in Montgomery County remain closed.

On- and off-ramps to the Thruway at Riverside Drive in Fultonville were both reopened about 6:30 a.m., after exits 27 (Amsterdam) and 29 (Canajoharie) were reopened Thursday.

The state Department of Transportation has also reopened a section of Route 5S between Canajoharie and Fort Plain that had been closed due to flooding. However, that highway remains closed along a 17-mile stretch between Main Street in Fort Hunter and the Thruway interchange in Canajoharie, according to the Montgomery County Emergency Management Office.

Route 5 between Route 334 in Fonda and Route 10 in Palatine Bridge was also reopened this morning, according to state transportation officials, but a section of the highway between Route 67 in Fort Johnson and Guy Park Avenue in Amsterdam remains closed, county emergency management officials said, as does Route 67 between the Johnstown city line and Route 5 in Fort Johnson.

All schools in Montgomery County are open this morning, as are Fulton-Montgomery Community College and Hamilton-Fulton-Montgomery BOCES.
