Gov. Kathy Hochul has announced $100 million to repave State roadways impacted by extreme weather. The funding will go to repaving projects at 64 locations – almost 520 lane miles of pavement.

“We are making historic investments in transportation infrastructure to create safer roads and smooth, hassle-free commutes for all travelers,” Hochul said in a statement. “New York is home to extreme weather year-round, and this $100 million in funding will be vital to helping ensure that our road conditions are safe for our hardest-hit communities.”

“Weather these days is more intense more often, necessitating the need for vital and timely maintenance of our infrastructure,” said New York State Department of Transportation Commissioner Marie Therese Dominguez.
