$100 Million Investment for Repaving Includes The Southern Tier of New York
On November 27th, New York State Governor Kathy Hochul announced that $100 million in funding has been released to support the renewal of Empire State roadways that have been impacted by extreme weather.
This will include 66 New York State locations for repaving projects covering almost 568 miles of pavement. These roadway improvements will make highways safer and more efficient throughout New York State, which in turn will help local commerce and tourism.
From a devastating blizzard to historic flooding, we are living in a time of record-breaking weather events which have left many roads across New York State in need of repair and rejuvenation. This $100 million will lengthen the lifespan of dozens of roads across the State, making them more resilient in the face of future extreme weather conditions. - New York State Governor Kathy Hochul
