(Monticello) - County Manager David P Fanslau announced that Sullivan County officials are appreciative of the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) decision to award a contract for the construction of improvements to Exit 106 of State Route 17, in conjunction with the planned work necessary to transform the quickway into Interstate 86.
“I applaud NYSDOT for recognizing the economic development importance that Exit 106 has on the County’s seat – Monticello,” said Jonathan F. Rouis, Chairman of the Legislature. “This construction project is needed to transform the quickway into I-86, but it is also vital to the revitalization of Monticello, and the greater Sullivan County economy,” added Rouis.
NYSDOT has awarded a $9.18 million contract to the Delaney Group for the Exit 106 project. The anticipated start date is about August 23, 2010.
"It appears our efforts to expedite the construction of the Exit 106 Interchange have finally paid off. The new Exit 106 Interchange will strengthen our efforts to redevelop Apollo Plaza site and will also benefit many of the existing businesses along East Broadway," said Legislator Alan J. Sorensen, District 9.
“NYSDOT Region 9 Administrator, Jack Williams, has been very responsive to the transportation infrastructure needs of Sullivan County, and the County appreciates that this project is moving forward this year,” concluded Fanslau
