CARMEL, NY – With safety being the No.1 priority of her administration, Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell demanded the repairing of Route 6 be a priority in a recent meeting with the New York State Department of Transportation. Senator Terrence Murphy and Assemblyman Kevin Byrne also attended the meeting.

“State roads are the responsibility of the New York State,” said Odell. “Brewster Avenue (Route 6) past Reed Memorial Library is a State road and the responsibility of repairing that road lies with them.”

New York State has allocated $1.7 for the repaving of Route 6 from Reed Memorial Library to Route 312.

“I am assured by the DOT District leadership that the repaving of that road will begin this summer,” Odell said.
