Governor Cuomo Announces More than $100 Million to Pave Roads Impacted by this Year's Extreme Winter

TOP Governor Cuomo Announces More than $100 Million...

Harsh Winter Paving Initiative Projects Will Occur in Every Region of the State and Complement the Nearly $300 Million Already Committed for Paving This Construction Season

Investment Will Enhance Safety, Improve Traffic Flow


Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced more than $100 million in state funding to repave and enhance roadways impacted by the harsh weather this past winter. Funding will support 84 projects and the renewal of nearly 1,000 lane miles of pavement across the state, including at least one project in every county and New York City. The new funding, awarded through the Harsh Winter Paving Initiative, is in addition to nearly $300 million previously committed for projects that repave approximately 1,600 lane miles of road across New York State. The unprecedented infrastructure investment will make state highways safer and more efficient, while encouraging local commerce and tourism. The projects will take place throughout the summer and into fall, and will be completed this year.


"These investments are critical to our transportation system and essential for community growth and regional economic competitiveness," Governor Cuomo said. "By infusing more than $100 million in state funds to revitalize our roads, we are enhancing the quality of life for all New Yorkers while ensuring every traveler remains safe throughout the Empire State."


The State Budget included $65 million in Extreme Weather Recovery funds for locally-owned roadways, and this additional $100 million investment will support the renewal of state-owned roadways. This critical funding is supported through the New York State Department of Transportation's five-year capital plan and is in addition to the $743 million provided in this year's budget in direct state aid to local governments for road and bridge repair and modernization.


"I applaud Governor Cuomo for making this major investment in our state roadways," New York State Department of Transportation Acting Commissioner Paul A. Karas said. "The roads we are paving this summer provide important connections within and between communities, linking downtowns to business districts and supporting our agriculture and tourism industries."


Senator Joseph E. Robach, Chair of the Senate Committee on Transportation said, "It is critically important that when motorists use roadways across New York State that they that are safe and in optimal condition. I was pleased in this years' budget, the Senate, Assembly and Governor committed significant funding to make necessary repairs to roads and infrastructure in every region of our state in response to the effects of the winter season. I will continue to work tireless to ensure that New Yorkers have modern, 21st century roads, bridges and infrastructure and parity in transportation funding for every region of our state."


Assemblyman David F. Gantt, Chair of the Assembly Committee on Transportation said, "I'm pleased that the Legislature and Governor were able to prioritize the need for this additional funding in this year's budget. This Harsh Winter Paving Initiative will ensure that every county in the State will see additional paving improvements."
