Nearly 150 miles of road will get a makeover in central New York, including several state routes in Cayuga and Onondaga counties.
Last week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced $23.5 million for projects to pave and repair 146.9 miles of roads across the state.
According to a press release, the state will fund paving projects in Cayuga, Cortland, Madison, Onondaga and Oswego counties this year. The infrastructure investment is part a total $403.3 million dedicated to paving 1,700 miles of roadways statewide.
“Safe and reliable infrastructure is the backbone of any economy and this funding will help ensure roadways across the region remain in good repair and able to meet the needs of New Yorkers, businesses and visitors alike,” the governor said. “This administration has made an unprecedented investment in rebuilding New York’s transportation network.”
