New York Construction Report staff report

A $21.8-million construction project has started on a stretch of Interstate 88 from Exit 18 in the town of Maryland to Exit 19 in the town of Worcester, Otsego County.

The project will resurface 8.4 miles of pavement on Interstate 88 between Exit 18 (Schenevus) in the town of Maryland and Exit 19 (Worcester/E. Worcester) in the town of Worcester, Otsego County. Additionally, minor work will take place on the bridges over South Hill Road, and rehabilitation work will be done on 16 small culverts.

Interstate 88 connects the Southern Tier and the Capital District. Work on the project is expected to last until early 2026 and the highway will remain open while construction is underway.

“It’s construction season here in New York and our forces are working to restore roads and bridges, and enhance safety in all regions of the state,” said State Department of Transportation Commissioner Marie Therese Dominguez. “As a frequent traveler on I-88, I know the importance of this corridor for tourism and commerce, and this project will serve to enhance both.”
