(White Plains, NY) – As a continuation of his plan to rebuild Westchester’s infrastructure, County Executive George Latimer is announcing funding for two projects in the Harrison/Port Chester part of the County totaling $3.8M.
Latimer said: “The roads in our Capital Program are oft-traveled and in need of repairs. With these repairs comes jobs, increased access to local destinations and peace of mind to Westchester’s commuters. Our infrastructure is in need of real investment and my Administration is providing it.”
Capital Project ID# RB183 – totaling $2.4M - will fund the rehabilitation of approximately 1.12 miles of roadway on Union Avenue in Harrison from West Street to Route 127 including milling resurfacing and concrete curb replacement. This main thoroughfare leads to two Harrison Public Schools and two houses of worship.
Capital Project ID# RB201 – totaling $1.4M - will fund the rehabilitation of approximately 0.7 miles of roadway on Willet Avenue in Port Chester from King Street to Putnam Avenue including milling, resurfacing, concrete curb replacement, drainage repairs, new traffic loops and new pavement marking.
County Legislator Nancy Barr, who represents the district and in early September requested funding for these projects be included in the 2020 Capital Project Budget, said: "I'd like to thank County Executive George Latimer for including these projects in the 2020 capital budget. These are crucial roadways for the people in my district. The stretch of Union Avenue in Harrison set for repair leads to two public schools and houses of worship; and Willet Avenue in Port Chester is a heavily trafficked road whose repair is long overdue. I'm proud that the County Executive and Board of Legislators have made repairing our infrastructure a top priority."
