Additional funding has been awarded to Putnam County for road repairs along Route 6. An extra $1.7 million from the New York Department of Transportation will be used to repair and resurface the area of Route 6 from the Putnam Trailway hub, to the intersection of Route 301 in Carmel. The previous section funded was from Reed Memorial Library to Route 312 in Southeast. The additional money was announced after Putnam County Executive MaryEllen Odell met with the regional director of the New York DOT. The monies are part of more than 100 million dollars in state funding to repave and enhance roadways impacted by the harsh weather this past winter.
