November 6, 2019 – As a part of the 2020 Westchester County Capital Project Budget, County Executive George Latimer is announcing an additional $1,165,000 in funding to repair Theodore Fremd Avenue in Rye – bringing the total capital funding allotted to $2,265,000.

Latimer said: “This project is another one in our plan that is intended to make the everyday commute of Westchester County residents easier. All throughout this County, this Capital Program is designed to rebuild our infrastructure while saving drivers from the hassles of roads in disrepair.”

Capital Project ID# RB131 will fund cold milling and removal of the existing asphalt overlay, cleaning, filling and sealing of joints and cracks while the roadway is tack-coated and paved with asphalt. Work will also include replacement of sections of concrete curbing, installation of handicap sidewalk ramps, replacement of traffic loops, adjustment or replacement of utility castings and reflectorized pavement markings on the stretch of road from Central Avenue to Purchase Street.

The project is currently being designed, will be awarded over the winter with construction scheduled to start in the spring.

County Legislator Catherine Parker, who represents the area, said: “Theodore Fremd Avenue is a major artery for the people of Rye and the whole surrounding community, with more than 7,000 vehicle trips on average daily. The road connects our towns and is home to many major employers. These long-needed repairs will make the roadway easier to travel and safer for everyone. I thank County Executive George Latimer for including this new money his capital budget proposal.”
