NYSDOT Route 12B Project

The NYS Department of Transportation is planning a major reconstruction of 12B through the Village in 2025. In preparation for that work, they are studying all the intersections to determine if they should be altered to be safer and more efficient.  Community input is very important and they held their first public meeting on March 28th.  Over 75 community members attended the two sessions  and everyone had the chance to share their ideas and concerns about the plan in small group discussions.  The DOT team will incorporate the information they received in their design stage and will return to share some possible plans, probably in August.  In the meantime, they welcome further comments at https://www.dot.ny.gov/rt12Breconstruction.

Through the support of Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand in the US Senate and the efforts of Congressman Brandon Williams, who initiated the process in the House of Representatives, the Village of Hamilton has been approved to receive $1M in congressional funding for our Route 12B water infrastructure improvement project. We are so grateful for the support of our political leaders and their understanding of local issues.

When the DOT refurbishes our 12B corridor, the Village anticipates replacing water and sewer pipes that are 100 years old. This is an immense project and this grant will  help lessen the burden on our taxpayers.
