WATERTOWN, N.Y. -- You may better know Outer Washington Street in Watertown as car dealership row with just about every make and model within a half mile radius. But back in 2010, the Honda dealership in town, Drum Honda, closed. So people who wanted to get their cars serviced or wanted to look at new models had to drive to Syracuse or even Utica. But that's all about to change.
Honda has awarded FX Caprara a contract to become the North Country's newest dealer.
"Many people were traveling to Syracuse. I'm hearing some of the numbers of Honda dealers in Syracuse was that 25 percent of their business happened to be from the North Country. So it's so nice to have that back here, the convenience," said Charlie Caprara, FX Caprara co-owner.
Caprara says he expects to break ground on a new building this spring and be open by August. He says the opening could bring 50 jobs with it.
