Southern Tier and Central New York Weather-Impacted Road Project Funds
Close to a dozen Southern Tier road projects are due to get over $19 million in New York State money to fix damage from extreme weather.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the funding January 22 that includes work on route 12 in Chenango County, Route 79 in the Town of Fenton as well as a portion in Tioga County from Route 38 to the Tompkins County line, Route 7 in Tunnel, Route 97 in Delaware County and Route 26 in Cortland County.
The 19-point-six million dollars allocated for renewal of 124-lane miles of roads in Broome, Chemung, Chenango, Delaware, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga and Tompkins counties is part of a total of $151 million in new funding for 95 paving projects on roads impacted by extreme weather events.
The Governor’s office says the new funding through the PAVE NY initiative complements $734 million in direct State aid for local road and bridge projects across New York.
