Several county roads in New Castle are among those that will have work paid for through funding approved by the Westchester County Board of Legislators, according to County Executive Rob Astorino’s office.
The total amount of funding is $5 million and will be used to finance work on 40 county roads that have been damaged. The New Castle roads include portions of Washington Avenue and South Greeley Avenue in downtown Chappaqua and a portion of Seven Bridges Road between the Yorktown border and Route 133.
The board approved the funding on Tuesday in a 16-0 vote, according to Astorino’s office.
“This is a big win for taxpayers and motorists,” the county executive said in a statement. “Last year’s storms and tough winter did a number on our roads, and while our road crews did a good job making repairs where necessary, this new program gives the county the capability to respond more quickly when urgent repairs are needed.”
