Dozens of New York State Department of Transportation workers from the Binghamton region provided assistance to areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy.

About fifty employees from this area spent time downstate, helping augment crews in New York City and Long Island, as well as in Orange and Ulster counties.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, DOT spokesman David Hamburg local crews helped with cleanup activities and tasks to deal with emergency infrastructure issues.

About sixty pieces of large equipment from the Binghamton region were sent to the disaster zone.

Hamburg said many of the local DOT employees spent several days working in some of the hardest-hit areas.

Hamburg said the Department of Transportation worked with several other state agencies to assist local governments in the aftermath of the hurricane.

The last of the Binghamton-area workers who were assisting with the storm damage returned home November 18.
