New Rockland Highway Department Facility Plans Moving Forward

Rockland county is moving forward with plans to build a new facility for the Highway Department, which was originally proposed in 2000 and shut down in 2008 when the estimated price rose to $30 million. According to County Executive Ed Day’s state of the county address earlier this month, the new site would be located off of Exit 14 on the Thruway and would allow more access to every part of the county. The newly proposed site would replace the aging facility located at the New City Government campus, and would include a building for salt storage, a car wash, and a possible natural gas filling station, which Day states could lead to increased revenue for the county. The Committee of Budget and Finance will be looking into the proposal, with the rest of the Legislature to ensure that the new project is cost effective.
