New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced yesterday that the state will invest $100 million dollars to help support the renewal of the state’s roadways that were impacted by extreme weather.
In total, the funding will go towards 64 projects with nearly 520 miles of pavement done. Part of the Central New York funding will be $5.3 million dollars to replace pavement markings and audible roadways delineators on various state owned highways in Cayuga, Cortland, Onondaga, Oswego, Seneca and Tompkins County.
“We are making historic investments in transportation infrastructure to create safer roads and smooth, hassle-free commutes for all travelers,” Governor Hochul said. “New York is home to extreme weather year-round, and this $100 million in funding will be vital to helping ensure that our road conditions are safe for our hardest-hit communities.”
The funding is part of the state’s effort to make state highways safer and more efficient while encouraging local commerce and tourism.
