Skoufis Announces $7.15M in Funding for Road Repairs District-Wide
Senator James Skoufis (D-Hudson Valley) announced funding awards to repave roads impacted by extreme weather conditions. This funding is provided through the PAVE NY Initiative and the projects will begin and be completed in 2020.
Senator Skoufis said, “I tirelessly lobbied the Department of Transportation to ensure that our local roadways were 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.”
A breakdown of the funding:
- $1.6 million to renew Route 202 from Meade Drive to Route 9W (Haverstraw)
- $1.5 million to renew Route 211 from Goshen Turnpike to Route 416 (Montgomery)
- $600,000 to renew Route 94 from Route 9W to Old Forge Hill Road (New Windsor)
