WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Assemblyman David Buchwald (D-Westchester) has announced that roads within the towns of New Castle and Mount Kisco are set to be repaved in the coming months.
State Route 133, also known as Millwood Road or West Main Street, will be resurfaced between Route 120 near Quaker Road in the west and the Mount Kisco border in the east. Repaving is scheduled to begin construction in September or October of this year.
This project, which has been allocated $2.1 million, is both state and federally funded through the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).
In addition, state Route 117, known as Bedford Road in Chappaqua and Main Street in Mount Kisco will be repaved between Route 172 in the north, next to Northern Westchester Hospital and Route 141 in the south at the intersection of Bedford Road and Manville Road. Preparation on the project begins next week while construction and milling are expected to begin this summer.
This project has been allocated $5.1 million and is funded by the federal and state government. This is in addition to the $2 million awarded in federal Highway Safety Improvement Program funding for a project to realign the intersection of state routes 117 and 172 in Mount Kisco, as well as add pedestrian signals and facilities at all four crosswalks at that intersection.
“My first priority is the health and safety of my constituents, and I’m very pleased that these state roads in New Castle and the surrounding area will be repaved following one of the worst winters in recent history,” said Assemblyman Buchwald. “As a result of the storms, our roads in northern Westchester have made it more difficult to commute to work or drop off kids at school, and I’m pleased to play a part in restoring our community infrastructure.”
