Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the completion of the $3.2 million project to replace the Salt Point Turnpike Bridge over Wappinger Creek in the Town of Pleasant Valley, Dutchess County. The bridge - which also included the replacement of an adjacent culvert, enhanced safety and improved mobility along a key roadway (also known as State Route 115) - is used by motorists traveling between the Taconic State Parkway and the City of Poughkeepsie. The new bridge has a wider span than the previous structure as well as a new culvert to help improve water flow through the area, promoting the health of the waterway. At almost 42 miles, Wappinger Creek is the longest creek with the largest watershed in Dutchess County.
