(WHITE PLAINS, NY) With bipartisan support, Legislator Catherine Borgia has secured $6,520,000 to fund repairs to Pleasantville Road, which runs through Briarcliff Manor, Mount Pleasant and Ossining.  The repairs will include milling, asphalt, resurfacing, catch basin repair, concrete curb replacement, bus bands, installation of new traffic islands and new pavement markings.

“Pleasantville Road is one of the region’s most utilized streets and is vital to the local communities it connects,” stated Borgia. “I’m pleased that the necessary repairs to this road are finally going to move forward and will be able to utilize the plan set forth several years ago when this need was first identified.  The ability to use the previous design will save taxpayers money and help complete the project sooner.”

Pleasantville Road has an average annual daily traffic count of 14,068, making it one of the County’s most relied upon roadways. The associated pavement condition index (PCI) in 2013 was 60 and the roadway has continued to deteriorate since then.  The PCI rating is a pavement condition rating with a range of 0 to 100, with 0 signifying that the road requires reconstruction and 100 signifying that the road is new.  Based on that rating, this road requires corrective rehabilitation to extend the life of the roadway. 

The Bond Act is expected to pass unanimously at the September 8th Board of Legislators meeting.  The County estimates that the repairs will take 18 months to complete.
