$150 Million Route 17 Project To Be Completed This Fall
Let's face it, traffic is a way of life in the Hudson Valley. But one particular area that has been giving commuters headaches is the Exit 131 section of Route 17 in Central Valley.
The Times Herald-Record reports that the $150 million dollar project to remake the area where Route 17 meets up with Route 32 and the New York State Thruway will be completed as expected this fall. Unfortunately, that means with an increasing number of people using the roadway, local residents can expect traffic issues in the area through the summer.
Construction companies on the job must leave at least two lanes open during peak driving times and must limit lane closures to off-peak times.
Additional construction at Exit 125 for the Legoland exit will begin this summer as well.
