From the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department and Traffic Safety Board
Milling and Resurfacing Project from Rte 6 to Rte 52 and Rte. 6 to Rte 312
The long awaited road work and paving for the roads mentioned above is about to begin and you might have already seen the Variable Message Boards flashing
Roadwork Ahead 9 am – 4 pm.
Preliminary work has begun in the catch basins with the expected milling and filling work to begin approximately June 11th. This project is expected to take between 3-5 weeks, working during the day and some nights, and is dependent on weather conditions and construction unknowns. As we have been told by the NYS DOT Project Engineer, be prepared for some traffic inconveniences, loud noises, dust/dirt and general frustrations. However, please remember, as with most construction renovations, the outcome will be well worth it. The safety of our residents, our local businesses, school schedules and emergency services have all been discussed as to keeping the impact of the project at a minimal.
For up-to-date information, please look at the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department website and Facebook page, the Putnam County Traffic Safety Board’s website and Facebook page, the Town of Carmel website and your local newspapers.
