Assemblywoman Galef Announces Multi-Modal Funding Grants for Road and Infrastructure Improvements Throughout the 90th Assembly District

February 12, 2008
Assemblywoman Sandy Galef announced today that the New York State multi-modal funding program grants have been awarded in her 90th Assembly District. This funding supports projects that benefit public roads, sidewalks, and infrastructure improvements related to any form of transportation.

“I am thrilled that these improvements to our highways and byways can begin,” commented Galef. “These repairs and upgrades help my constituents as well as visitors passing through or patronizing the area, which is why I feel so good about the allocations of this significant funding to my district.”

The $400,000 granted to the 90th Assembly district will be allocated as follows:

  • $50,000 to Peekskill for the Riverview & Maple curb;
  • $10,000 to Nelsonville for drainage on Healy Road;
  • $50,000 to Putnam Valley for blacktop on Kenneth Drive/Boswell Road;
  • $25,000 to Cold Spring for Route 9D drainage and safety;
  • $20,000 to Croton-on-Hudson for South Riverside/129 repairs;
  • $50,000 to Cortlandt for King’s Ferry Road; and
  • $50,000 to Philipstown for the South Bear Mountain Pass.

Briarcliff, Ossining, Buchanan and Kent are also expected to receive grants in the future as part of this multi-modal funding program cycle.

During 2007, work was already done on Route 9 in Ossining and Briarcliff as a result of Galef’s efforts, and more is expected in the next few years. Additional state road work in the area includes the new off-ramp from Route 9A south to the Taconic Parkway. Other infrastructure improvements in the Assemblywoman’s district include train station renovations in Ossining and Scarborough, and $230,000 for replacement of the ferry dock in Ossining which supports Metro North’s Haverstraw-Ossining Ferry Rail link.
