Clarkstown Receives $1.4 Million Grant to Reconstruct the Snake Hill Road CSX
(New City, NY) Supervisor George Hoehmann is pleased to
announce the Town of Clarkstown will receive $1.425 million dollars through the
NYS Department of Transportation 2016 Bridge NY Program to reconstruct the CSX
Bridge on Snake Hill Road in West Nyack. Clarkstown is the only Town in
Rockland County to receive funding from this state program.
The Town and our residents have been concerned about the safety
and condition of that portion of Snake Hill Road for years, said Supervisor
Hoehmann. We are thankful the State has recognized our concerns and for
their commitment to critical infrastructure upgrades such as this.
The grant will reimburse the Town 95% and includes both design
and construction costs, with a chance to get 100% reimbursed for construction
costs. The scope of work calls for the replacement of the superstructure
which includes the deck, sidewalks, walls, and beams. The project would
be completed in 18 months.
I will continue to
search and apply for grant opportunities like this to keep Clarkstown residents safe and our infrastructure up to date, said
