    Public officials and executives with AT&T Mobile on Thursday unveiled the company's newest cell towerSchroon, NY – There’s only one “dead zone” remaining for cell phone service along a stretch of the interstate highway that cuts through the eastern Adirondacks.

    Public officials and executives with AT&T Mobile on Thursday unveiled the company’s newest cell tower, a 90-foot-tall structure along Interstate 87 — the Adirondack Northway — in the Essex County town of Schroon (skroon). The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports (http://bit.ly/JfVH8M) that it’s the company’s fifth cell tower to go online this year in the Adirondacks.

    The new Schroon tower leaves only a 13-mile cell service dead zone along the Northway between exits 30 and 31 in Essex County.

    In the winter of 2007, a Brooklyn man froze to death after his car crashed off the highway in the county and he couldn’t call for help because there was no cell service.
