Third lane on Rt. 17 included in $1 trillion Senate Dem. infrastructure package

WASHINGTON – Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer announced on Wednesday his caucus’s proposed $1 trillion, 10-year infrastructure plan that would address New York’s outdated water and sewer systems, roads, bridges, energy grids, bringing high-speed Internet to rural areas and building new schools.

In the Hudson Valley, Schumer has two major projects in mind.

“We will finally finish Route and make it a three-lane highway to Sullivan County; there is congestion there, as well as enhancing the traffic patterns in White Plains’ downtown business district,” the senator said.

Schumer said the Republicans’ infrastructure proposal “went over like a lead balloon” and he believes there could be a bipartisan compromise.
