Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney praised Governor Andrew Cuomo for announcing the accelerated construction of the Woodbury I-87 Interchange at Exit 131 during the 2017 State of the State address in Westchester County.
Last year, after ensuring that the necessary federal funding was included in the 2015 Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, Representative Maloney and local officials celebrated the 2016-17 New York State budget investment in the rehabilitation of the Woodbury I-87 Interchange at Exit 131. Previously set to begin construction in 2018, construction will now begin this year.
“Anyone who drives through southern Orange County knows what it’s like to sit in endless traffic around Woodbury Common, which is why fixing this problem has been my top transportation priority since day one – that means beginning construction as soon as possible,” said Congressman Maloney. “I want to thank Governor Cuomo for working together – from securing billions in federal transportation funding to prioritizing local projects at the state level – to get the ball rolling faster on this critical project.”
