The state Bridge NY program has awarded $5.235 million for critical infrastructure revitalization in the 99th Assembly District, Assemblyman Colin Schmitt announced.
Two projects directly impacting the 99th district were funded:
$4.235 million for Orange County Department of Public Works to replace the Hulsetown Road bridge over Cromline Creek in Campbell Hall.
$1 million for Orange County Department of Public Works to replace the Lakes Road (CR5) culvert carrying the tributary to Shinhollow Brook in the Chester-Monroe area.
“The Bridge NY state funding will directly fund two major local infrastructure projects for citizens of our Assembly District and region,” Schmitt said in the press release detailing the state awards. “I am pleased to announce this state funding is coming to our communities and look forward to continued advocacy in the next legislative session to ensure we receive our fair share of funding from Albany for local roads and bridges.”
Schmitt represents the following communities in the state Assembly: the towns of Wawayanda, Goshen, Hamptonburgh, Chester, Blooming Grove, New Windsor, Cornwall, Highlands and Woodbury in Orange County and the Town of Stony Point in Rockland County.
