$11M Resurfacing Project On I-84 Completed



HUDSON VALLEY, NY — The resurfacing project for a 7.7-mile section of Interstate 84 has been completed.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday the completion of the $11 million project that spanned Dutchess and Putnam counties.

“Strengthening the safety and reliability of our state’s highways is critical in not only helping protect travelers, but in growing regional economies as well,” he said in a prepared statement. “Along with helping boost safety and quality of life for those who travel this roadway, this section of I-84 plays an important role in the movement of goods and services throughout the Northeast and this project has helped ensure it will remain a viable transportation route for years to come.”

The resurfacing project began in spring 2020 on one of the Hudson Valley’s most heavily traveled roadways, according to a spokesperson.

In addition to the new pavement, the project made repairs to the roadbed and pavement joints, which will significantly extend the lifespan of the road surface, state officials said.

The ramps to the east- and westbound Stormville rest areas were also paved as part of the project.

Highway officials said the paving was completed quickly and required only short-term closures of the rest areas.
