Yorktown, NY – One of Yorktown’s busiest thoroughfares is getting a facelift, courtesy of a $250,000 grant driven home by Senator Terrence Murphy. Presently, Quinlan Street is a bumpy ride with sections of rough road. A mile and a half Quinlan Street will soon be repaved, giving it a smooth, safer surface.

Standing at the intersection of Quinlan Street and Louella Street amidst busy mid-day traffic, Senator Murphy recently presented Yorktown Highway Superintendent Dave Paganelli with a check to fund Quinlan Street’s new look.

“Investing in our infrastructure means more jobs, a more vibrant economy, and protects our home values,” said Senator Murphy. “Quinlan Street is a major artery that runs from Guiding Eyes for the Blind to the Jefferson Valley Mall. We’re here today to make a lot of people in Yorktown happy with the news that driving down Quinlan Street is going to feel a whole lot better. At the end of the day, it’s not just what we do for the people of Yorktown to improve their quality of life; it’s what we do for everyone in the 40th Senate District.”

Superintendent Paganelli stated, “Senator Murphy always comes through for the people of Yorktown. He put a new traffic light between Route 129 and Route 118. During last year’s nor’easters, he was out with me accessing the needs of our department, as well as finding ways to help the community. And Senator Murphy is bipartisan – he works with everyone because he wants to do what’s right for his constituents.”
