After hearing from residents again this summer about the terrible conditions on State Route 17A, I decided once again to try to get the NYS DOT to focus on this important roadway. I wrote also to our State elected officials, Senator Bonacic and Assemblyman Brabenec. Both offices responded with the message from NYS DOT that no money had been budgeted for this work and that they try to prioritize work based on overall conditions of the State highways. I urged that our officials press them again to re-evaluate the conditions of State Route 17A. A month went by, and then I received a call from the local DOT office, telling me they would be paving from the Village of Warwick to Bellvale. After this job was done, quickly and professionally, I received another call that they would be doing the same from the Village of Greenwood Lake to the top of Tuxedo Mountain. I want to publically thank the NYS DOT, Senator Bonacic and Assemblyman Brabenec, as well as everyone else who played a role in getting this sorely overdue work done.
The NYS Department of Transportation will be paving a portion of Route 17A from Megan’s Way in the Village of Greenwood Lake to about one mile east of Old Tuxedo Road. This work will start on October 3rd for approximately three (3) days. Please leave extra time as you travel through this area.
