The New York City Department of Environmental Protection will provide $1 million for the reconstruction of about 2.2 miles of city-owned roadway along the Pepacton Reservoir, according to a media release from the DEP and Delaware County.
The latter’s Department of Public Works will reconstruct the road located on the north shore of the reservoir in the Town of Andes to improve driving conditions and safety. The road connects Route 30 and county Route 1. The rehabilitation includes paving and striping, guide rail replacement, upgrades to the road shoulders and cleaning of roadside drainage ditches
This is the second intergovernmental agreement between the city and Delaware County for road work over the past three years. The first, in 2012, also for $1 million, reconstructed 2.1 miles of city Route 30A.
“Our public works crew is happy to be working with the city again, said county DPW Commissioner Wayne Reynolds. The rehabilitation of this road near Shavertown Bridge will make it safer for drivers, and we hope to do more work with DEP in the future.”
