WALLKILL — Elected officials, business owners, and concerned residents filled a ballroom at the West Hills Country Club in Middletown, New York.
The coalition, 17-Forward-86, put together a panel to further the task of expanding State Route 17 into a three-lane highway.
The coalition formed in 2018 is promoting and exploring the expansion of State Route 17 from Woodbury Commons in Orange County to Liberty in Sullivan County and has over 200 members.
With this expansion, the coalition hopes to alleviate the current traffic congestion the region sees yearly and to spur on more economic growth.
