CARMEL, N.Y. - The milling and repaving of Route 6 in Carmel is underway.

Paleen Construction of Somers has started on the state Department of Transportation project, which is expected to be done in two phases. The first phase of the project will repair Route 6 from Reed Library to Route 312 in the hamlet of Carmel. The second phase will repair Route 6 at Willow Road to Route 52 (aka Gleneida Avenue) at Route 301. 

“The safety and well-being of the people of Putnam continue to be my No. 1 priority and repaving this section of Route 6 will make the roadway safe once again,” said County Executive MaryEllen Odell. “Legislator Carl Albano and I have been in communication with the state DOT to make sure that the project is done efficiently and effectively.”

The repaving will require a road grinder to mill the existing surface, then the company needs to pour and grade the new asphalt. The work will be done in sections, and as each section is completed it will be usable right away. The first phase is expected to take two to three weeks to complete. 

The second phase of the repaving project is expected to begin in the late summer or early fall.
