"Local Roads Matter" Rally Draws A Crowd In Albany



Dozens of people wore bright orange tee shirts in Albany today with the words "Local Roads Matter" printed on them. Some  90 or so  state law makers along with a good number of county and town highway superintendents are seeking an addition this year of 50-million dollars for the Consolidated Highway Improvement Program.

132nd District Assembly Member Phil Palmesano is one of the people spearheading the drive.  He says most of the state's traffic is carried on local roads.                                        

The other leeder of the group, State Senator Tom O'Mara, says local governments need help to keep local bridges safe.  

The group also wants to see the creation of a new multi-year 200-million dollar dedicated state fund for designated bridge and culvert improvement projects statewide.
