South Putt Corners Road Rehabilitation

New Paltz, NY

HVEA is providing design services for the rehabilitation of South Putt Corners Road (CR 17) from NYS Route 32 to NYS Route 299 in the Town of New Paltz. A vital link in the transportation network, South Putt connects State Highways and is the destination for several regional facilities including the New Paltz High School and the NYSDEC Regional offices.

New Paltz has an active bicycle community that has been involved with the project from the beginning to improve safety for bicyclists. HVEA balanced the requests of the bicycle committee with the stringent guidelines involved with federal funding and developed a design to satisfy all parties.

HVEA had 3R design standards approved for this project to aid in mitigating the impact of the construction. Design tasks include overlaying the pavement, widening the shoulders from 0 to 6 feet, minor horizontal realignment, construction of auxiliary turning lanes to improve operations, replacing deficient guide railing, and significant post construction stormwater management.

The project is funded with federal funds and is being progressed under the oversight review of the NYSDOT Local Projects Group. This project included:

  • 1.7 miles of roadway rehabilitation
  • Substantial shoulder widening
  • Roadway drainage
  • ROW acquisitions
  • Signing & pavement markings
  • Utility relocation
