Is Your Local Roadway Getting Funding For Repairs?
Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that millions of dollars in funding will be going towards fixing up roadways across the state. Here is a list of Capital Region roads that have money earmarked to be repaired. According to News 10 ABC, there are several pavement renewal projects that will be done across the state. The governor has given the green light to three hundred fifty-seven million dollars to fix the roadways. The plan is to use environmentally conscious construction techniques to reduce fuel consumption and to reduce greenhouse gasses during repairs and construction.
Governor Cuomo said this of the projects,
“These investments are laying the foundation for sustained growth in tourism and business development while enhancing the resilience of the supporting infrastructure.”
There are thirty-five million dollars set aside to renew one hundred ninety-six miles of lanes across the Capital Region. This includes roadways in Columbia, Greene, Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Saratoga, Washington, and Warren counties.
Some of the bigger, more expensive projects are a five million dollar resurfacing project on Route 149 from the Warren County Line to Route 4 in the Town of Fort Ann and from Route 4 to Route 40 in the Towns of Kingsbury and Harford in Washington County. A four-point three million dollar project to resurface Route 32 from Route 4 in the Town of Stillwater to the Village of Victory line in the Towns of Stillwater and Saratoga in Saratoga County. There is a three-point seven million dollar project that will resurface Route 9L from Route 254 to Sunnyside Road, and from Clements Road to Pilot Knob Road in Warren County.
