Work Begins on $11 Million “Complete Street” Corridor Project on Route 45 in Spring Valley

Construction is now underway for an $11 million “Complete Street” corridor project designed to enhance a 1.36-mile stretch of Route 45 in Spring Valley. The project focuses on improving North Main Street between State Route 59 and West Eckerson Road, incorporating the following features:

– New left-turn lanes
– Upgraded traffic signals
– Improved crosswalks
– Accessible pedestrian signal equipment
– Sidewalk curb ramps
– Drainage system enhancements
– New lane configurations

Bicyclists will share the travel lanes with clearly marked shared lane indicators. Traffic-calming measures, including curb bump-outs, narrowing of over-wide lanes, and a raised median, will help reduce traffic speeds and create a safer environment for cyclists.

To accommodate all users along the corridor, benches, bike racks, and two updated bus shelters will be installed. The streetscape will also receive aesthetic improvements, with existing landscaping being preserved or replanted to complement the village’s surroundings.

Most of the construction is expected to be completed by early 2026.

Town of Ramapo Supervisor Michael Specht welcomed the initiative, saying, “The commencement of the Route 45 ‘Complete Street’ corridor project is very welcome news in the Town of Ramapo. The improvements that the Department of Transportation are undertaking will increase pedestrian safety, improve traffic flow for our drivers, and enhance our residents’ quality of life. I’d like to thank Governor Hochul and the NYS DOT for listening to our concerns and moving forward with these much-needed infrastructure upgrades.”

Assemblyman John McGowan echoed this sentiment, stating, “Given the state of these roads, this is welcome news. The safety of all residents is critical, and these enhancements to safety for drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians are appreciated. I look forward to the completion of these projects and to continuing to work with the DOT and our local municipalities on future projects.”

NY State Senator Bill Weber said in a statement “Significant enhancements along State Routes 45 and 59 are urgently needed, as well as critical road resurfacing. Many thanks to Governor Kathy Hochul for her attention to the infrastructure needs of the 38th Senate District and the substantial funding allocated to address them”

The “Complete Street” concept ensures that roadways are planned and designed to provide safe, convenient access for users of all ages and abilities, including children, seniors, and individuals with disabilities.

State officials urge motorists to follow the “Move Over” law, shifting lanes or slowing down significantly when approaching roadside vehicles with flashing lights, including construction vehicles. Drivers are also encouraged to exercise caution and drive responsibly in work zones.
