Old Route 17 is the original alignment of NY 17 prior to the construction of the Quickway (NY 17/Future I-86). The portion in Sullivan County goes through several different county route designations. It changes designation from CR 179 to CR 178 at an overpass where the Quickway (NY 17/Future I-86) crosses Old Route 17 with no interchange in Livingston Manor. The CR 178 extends for a few miles to the east to exit 97 of the Quickway (NY 17/Future I-86), where it ends.
