Paving Projects Announced for Some NY Roads
By Joe Gullo
ALBANY, N.Y. - New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced $36 million for road paving projects across the state.
A press release says Interstate 87 between Cumberland Head and Chazy in Beekmantown, Chazy and Plattsburgh will be paved with this funding.
“This past winter brought heavy storms to communities all across the state, and by accelerating these resurfacing projects we are building our roads back stronger than ever,” Governor Cuomo said. “This funding will make our roadways safer and smoother for those who live, work and visit New York, and allocating it for this construction season means the repairs will be completed sooner than originally planned. I am proud that the State is working alongside our federal partners to rebuild our transportation infrastructure, and we will continue doing so to ensure safer communities for all.”
Depending on the location, projects will include paving over sections of rough road, removing the worn top layer of pavement from all travel lanes and shoulders, repairing base concrete and/or asphalt, improving drainage, and installing a new asphalt riding surface.
