$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.
