Urges NYSDOT to Prioritize Commuter's Concerns

Newburgh, NY – After releasing a detailed report on local transportation and infrastructure challenges in the Hudson Valley, Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) outlined urgent transportation concerns to New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) Commissioner Joan McDonald shared by 1,800 constituents who answered an online survey issued by Rep. Maloney’s office. In addition, Rep. Maloney launched an online form to encourage folks to continue to report local transportation infrastructure problems including potholes, cracks and safety hazards.

"Smart investments in infrastructure that lead to more economic growth throughout the Hudson Valley, create an immediate boom of construction jobs, and rebuild American roads, bridges and mass transit systems that have been falling apart and become unsafe over the past decade," said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney. "No pothole is too small - I want folks to know that I'll go to bat to advocate for any problems my neighbors face on their commute." 

Rep. Maloney will collect all reports of local infrastructure, transportation and safety concerns by his neighbors in the Hudson Valley and submit them to the New York State Department of Transportation monthly.  

Earlier this year, Maloney announced $6 million in federal Highway Safety Improvement Program funding for three major Hudson Valley projects including $2 million for resurfacing and safety improvements to Route 302 in Crawford. In June, he announced $6.7 million in federally funded projects through the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program to repave dangerous roads in Lewisboro, Bedford and Mt. Kisco.
