stefanieg@millertonnews.com

MILLERTON — The lane resurfacing on Route 199 in Millerton was completed on Monday, June 20, but contractors will continue to work sporadically to finish the final stages of the project.
Work is not expected to completely wrap up for another three weeks because driveway ends need to be repaved, the road shoulders need to be finished and permanent road stripes need to be applied. Some of these final stages will require renewed lane closures.
The project, which is between Winchell Mountain Road and Route 22, is repaving both lanes for an approximate 2.1-mile (4.2 “lane mile”) stretch.

The town received $41,038.54, more than what some of the board members were expecting, including town Supervisor Dave Sherman.
“It was a positive indication there is some activity out there in the real estate market,” he said. “At least it’s providing us some revenue while we deal with budget expectations. If we can receive that much — hallelujah — more power to it.”
