Senator James Skoufis (D-Hudson Valley) and Assemblyman Ken Zebrowski (D-Rockland) announced $1.6M in funding awards to repave roads impacted by extreme weather conditions. Through the PAVE NY initiative, the Department of Transportation will renew Route 202 from Meade Drive to Route 9W. This project will begin and be completed in 2020.

In March of 2019, Senator Skoufis and Assemblyman Zebrowski sent a joint letter to the Department of Transportation expressing the dire need for Route 202’s repavement. The section that is being repaved is a 1 mile stretch from Meade Drive in the Town of Haverstraw to Route 9W to the Village of Haverstraw.

Senator Skoufis said, “This section of Route 202 is one of Haverstraw’s most frequently traveled roads. Alongside Assemblyman Zebrowski, I tirelessly lobbied the Department of Transportation to ensure that this roadway was prioritized in the PAVE NY initiative. Road safety is a quality of life issue and securing funding for our infrastructure will always be a top issue for me. Whether it’s commuting to work, driving to the supermarket, or traveling through the area, it’s imperative that our roadways are safe to move on for residents and visitors alike.”
