Molinaro appeals to NYS DOT to keep Exit 114 open

WURTSBORO – A proposal to close exit 114 on Route 17 has caught the eye of ​Congressman Marc Molinaro (R, NY-19) and he has written to State Transportation Commissioner Marie Therese Dominguez urging her to reconsider the move.


​”It is clear that closing Exit 114 would have a negative ripple effect across the Wurtsboro community and comes with major economic and safety concerns,” he wrote in a letter to the commissioner. “Therefore, I urge you to keep Exit 114 on Route 17 open.”


The congressman sent Dominguez a petition with some 3,500 signatures urging the exit to remain open “to highlight how important it is to keep Exit 114 open,​”  said Molinaro.


The potential closure is part of the eventual conversion of Route 17 from a New York highway to Interstate 86.
