The Village of Irvington is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a $1,136,000 grant from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the third largest grant of its kind in the state. The grant will be used for drainage improvements along Harriman Road near Broadway.
The Climate Smart Communities grant will be used to improve the drainage system along a stretch of Harriman Road near the intersection with Broadway, which has experienced recurring flooding issues in the past. The project will include the installation of a new culvert and other infrastructure designed to mitigate flooding and protect the surrounding community.
"We are thrilled to receive this grant, which will help us enhance our progress on flood mitigation in our community," said Mayor Brian Smith. "Flooding has caused significant damage and disruption in the past, and we are grateful for the opportunity to improve the infrastructure and protect our residents."
Construction on the project is set to begin later in 2023 and is expected to last 12-18 months. The Village of Irvington would like to thank the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation for their support and partnership in this important initiative.
