A section of a residential street near the Prospect Mountain project in Binghamton is receiving special attention this week.

Emergency repaving was ordered on the eastern portion of Prospect Street after conditions worsened in recent days.

Binghamton Mayor Richard David expressed appreciation to the state Department of Transportation for working with the city to address the problem.

Crews first milled parts of Prospect Street that had been damaged by severe weather and construction vehicles.

Paving crews on Thursday were busy putting down a fresh layer of asphalt on the targeted area.

City public works employees have been making emergency pothole repairs. The mayor said Riverside Drive and Conklin Avenue would be the focus of the work.
