New York State Department of Transportation in the US has awarded a $73m contract to a Servidone- Anthony joint venture (JV) to reconstruct Exit 122 on NYS Route 17 in Wallkill, Orange County.

The project will cover the first of two phases of work, which will replace a bridge and reconstruct highway ramps and the interchange.

The project is expected to enhance mobility throughout the region, support economic development and provide safer access to the local community.

The project is part of ongoing improvements that are converting Route 17 to meet federal interstate standards and allow its redesignation as I-86.

The project is expected to take two and a half years to complete.
