As State Prepares for Extreme Winter Weather Governor Hochul Announces $100 Million Investment for Roadway Repaving and Resiliency Enhancements

Governor Kathy Hochul today announced $100 million in funding has been released to support the renewal of State roadways impacted by extreme weather. The funding supports repaving projects at 66 locations, totaling almost 568 lane miles of pavement, and complements a record level of investment by the Governor in infrastructure across New York State.

“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.”

Through sustained investment in transportation infrastructure, New York State is making highways safer and more efficient while encouraging local commerce and tourism. The current $32.9 billion State Department of Transportation five-year capital plan, inclusive of federal formula funds from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, provides historic funding for road and bridge repair and modernization, and this critical infrastructure funding will help restore hundreds of lane miles of highway impacted by extreme weather.

New York State Department of Transportation Commissioner Marie Therese Dominguez said, “As we’ve seen over the last couple of years, extreme and intense weather patterns are impacting communities statewide. This funding provided by Governor Hochul will not only enhance road conditions and public safety, but also promote long-term sustainability and durability of our infrastructure in the face of harsher and more severe climate patterns.”

New York State Thruway Authority Acting Executive Director Frank G. Hoare said, “The Thruway Authority is prepared and ready to respond to winter weather, including extreme weather events like we saw last year in Western New York. When the forecast calls for snow, our crews work around the clock, keeping the 570-mile superhighway safe for motorists. We thank the New York State Department of Transportation and New York State Police, along with local and county municipalities, for their partnership and collaboration during winter weather events.”

New York State Homeland Security and Emergency Services Commissioner Jackie Bray said, “As climate change continues to increase the frequency of extreme weather, it’s critical we make real investments towards strengthening the resiliency of our infrastructure. This $100 million will ensure that roadways statewide will be better prepared to withstand Mother Nature well into the future.”

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.”

Representative Joe Morelle said, “We have a climate crisis impacting weather patterns and leading to more frequent extreme weather events—and it is clearly causing the deterioration of our roads and highways. Repairs like these are necessary to mitigate the impacts of these changing conditions and prepare for the future. I am grateful to Governor Hochul and Commissioner Dominguez for their continued efforts ensuring a more resilient infrastructure for New York State.”

Representative Pat Ryan said, “As many of our communities still recover from the devastating flood and other severe weather events, I’m proud to announce this much needed investment in Hudson Valley infrastructure. I’ll continue to partner with leaders across all levels of government as we work to build sustainable and resilient infrastructure across the region.”

Representative Grace Meng said, “As the New York representative on the Regional Leadership Council, I’m thrilled that money from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is continuing to help fund important projects across New York, including part of this investment for roadways damaged by storms. I am also glad that one of the projects listed is located in my congressional district. Continuing to maintain and upgrade our infrastructure throughout our state is crucial, and I thank Governor Hochul for working to ensure that roads impacted by extreme weather are receiving the funding they need.”

State Senator Tim Kennedy said, "New York's winters take a significant toll on our roads, and it's imperative that we're maintaining their stability and usability through dedicated, strategic investment. This funding builds upon the comprehensive infrastructure-focused agenda we continue to advance in order to prioritize driver safety and ultimately strengthen our economy."
