Funding For Exit 131 Project In Woodbury Included In State Budget

WOODBURY, N.Y. -- Streamlining traffic and easing resident's frustrations with traffic in the Woodbury Common area will be addressed now that the funds for the Exit 131 interchange project have been included in the 2016-17 budget, according to State Assemblyman James Skoufis (D-Woodbury).

“Securing the funding for the Exit 131 project was my number one local priority entering budget negotiations this year,” said Skoufis. “Today’s long-awaited announcement is the culmination of years of my championing the regional importance of this project; likewise, the support of Woodbury’s local officials was critical in getting us to this point. This is a huge win for Woodbury as well as the entire Hudson Valley.”

Once complete, the project will enhance the local quality of life and streamline traffic – particularly vehicles exiting Woodbury Common – all while making our local community safer in the process, Skoufis added.

The $150 million appropriation in the state budget will create a streamlined on-ramp to the Thruway for Woodbury Common traffic, eliminating the need for two left-hand turns out of the mall and, in the process, removing one of the existing traffic lights.

Additional enhancements to Route 6, Route 32, and Nininger Road will create an interchange that creates a more constant flow of traffic than the current system, he said.
