State Funding Coming for Area Road Work


$100 million in funding has been announced for work on roadways affected by extreme weather.

Governor Kathy Hochul made the announcement Monday that 66 projects throughout the Empire State will take place in the spring using this funding.

“From a devastating blizzard to historic flooding, we are living in a time of record-breaking weather events which have left many roads across New York State in need of repair and rejuvenation,” Governor Hochul said. “This $100 million will lengthen the lifespan of dozens of roads across the State, making them more resilient in the face of future extreme weather conditions.”

In Cayuga County, which the state considers part of the Central New York region, $1.9 million will go to resurface Route 90 from Route 326 to the Village of Cayuga line and from the Village of Aurora’s South Village line to the North Village line. Work will take place in the Village of Aurora along with the Towns of Aurelius, Ledyard, and Springport.

In the Finger Lakes Region, $1.9 million will be used to rehabilitate Route 21 from the Thruway to the Village of Pamyra in the Towns of Manchester and Palmyra. $2.2 million will resurface Route 14 to Route 104 in the Towns of Lyons and Sodus.

Majority Leader Charles Schumer said, “From Plattsburgh to New Paltz, this $100 million investment will help lay the foundation for more resilient roadways across New York and pave the way for smoother commutes by helping make long overdue repairs to roads damaged by storms. I’m proud to help deliver this funding boosted by our Bipartisan Infrastructure & Jobs Law, and commend Governor Hochul for taking this vital step towards ensuring the safety and durability of our infrastructure in the face of increasingly severe weather across New York.”
