Orange County reaches agreement with Palisades Interstate Park Commission on CR 106

GOSHEN – An agreement has been reached between Orange County government and the Palisades Interstate Park Commission that will allow the county to move forward with repairs to County Route 106 in the Southfields-Harriman State Park area. It was closed last year due to safety concerns.

The agreement with the PIPC involves the replacement of two culverts and approximately four miles of road improvements that will be funded through the Transportation Improvement Program. The two culverts will be scheduled for this construction season and the work to be performed by county forces at a cost of approximately $300,000. The road will then be opened on or about December 1.

The county is currently working with the NYSDOT to advance the road improvement project using $2.6 million in TIP; 80 percent would be federal money and 20 percent non-federal.

That portion of the project would consist of selecting a consultant, design, bidding and the construction of the general road improvements.
