Paving Results in Smoother Travel in Johnson City
A rough section of Main Street in Johnson City that's caused driver aggravation for months has been paved.
Part of the roadway near the Workers Arch at the Binghamton city line has proved to be an ongoing annoyance for westbound motorists.
A state Department of Transportation paving crew Tuesday put down a layer of asphalt to provide a smoother driving surface.
Crews previously had done some spot patching on the stretch of Main Street but shallow potholes would reemerge after a short time.
The new paving addresses the immediate roadway issues, although additional work along the Route 17C corridor is planned for next year.
According to DOT spokesman David Hamburg, a two-mile section of Main Street from Westover to the Binghamton city line is to be resurfaced in the next construction season.
