State Announces Funding For Roadway Repaving and Resiliency Enhancements


On Monday, New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced funding dedicated to roadway repaving and resiliency enhancements throughout the state, totaling $100 million dollars.

The governor’s office says the funding will go to support 66 repaving projects, totaling about 568 miles of pavements. Out of the $100 million dollars in funding, $8.1 million will go towards the resurfacing of Route 13/34/96 in Tompkins County.

Resurfacing will take place from Elmira Road to North Ithaca City line, Buffalo Street from Taughannock Boulevard to Meadow Street, Seneca Street from Fulton Street to Meadow Street and Green Street from Fulton Street to Meadow Street in the City of Ithaca.

New York State Department of Transportation Commissioner Marie Therese Dominguez said, “As we’ve seen over the last couple of years, extreme and intense weather patterns are impacting communities statewide. This funding provided by Governor Hochul will not only enhance road conditions and public safety, but also promote long-term sustainability and durability of our infrastructure in the face of harsher and more severe climate patterns.”

Work is expected to begin this spring.
