$28.9M upgrade in Putnam Valley

The state will soon begin work on a long-awaited $28.9 million bridge over the Taconic State Parkway and ramp upgrade at the Pudding Street intersection in Putnam Valley.

The project will eliminate the at-grade crossing that compels vehicles, including school buses, to cross four lanes of the Taconic, the governor’s office said. Assembly Member Kevin Byrne, whose district includes parts of Putnam Valley, called the intersection “one of the most dangerous” on the parkway.

The Pudding Street crossing will be closed for about five months beginning next summer and work is expected to be completed by mid-2021.

One thought on “Pudding Street Project Underway

  1. This $28.9 million project feels unnecessary. You don’t cross four lanes at Pudding Street; you cross two, have a safe spot to wait and then cross the other two. Maybe some days you have to wait a minute or two, but you have a clear sight line in both directions.

    Peekskill Hollow Road exit is far more dangerous. Put the money there. [via Facebook]
