Sen. Skoufis Announces Key Walden Repaving Projects

WALDEN – Senator James Skoufis (D-Hudson Valley) and the Village of Walden are delighted to announce two major state repaving projects in the village this summer: the resurfacing of a two mile section of Route 52 and a one mile section of Route 208, both of which run through the heart of Walden.

Additionally, sidewalk curb ramps along both routes that do not yet meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) specifications will be reconstructed to meet these standards.

Completion of all repairs is anticipated in the fall.

“These resurfacing projects will make a world of difference for local drivers and pedestrians,” said Senator Skoufis. “Both routes are the backbone of local travel through the Village of Walden and these projects will build on the important work local leaders have undertaken to revitalize their downtown corridor.. By making sure these roads are in fighting shape, we’re helping to connect people to the services and businesses they rely on every day, improving quality of life across the board.”

“The Village of Walden is thankful to Senator Skoufis and to the NYS DOT for finally hearing our call for improvements on the two major state roads that intersect our village,” said Village Manager John Revella. “These projects will help improve the curb appeal of our village and save our departments from fielding calls from local residents concerned with the current conditions. As the two major conduits through our village, these improvements will help efforts already ongoing to improve the streetscape and image of our community.”

Senator Skoufis remains a vocal advocate for local infrastructure investment and anticipates further announcements in the coming months.
