Governor Andrew M. Cuomo this week announced $151 million in new funding for the renewal of State roadways impacted by extreme weather events. Spending will support 95 paving projects and the renewal of approximately 1,013 lane miles of pavement across the state, including at least one project in every county and the City of New York.

This new funding, provided through the PAVE NY Initiative, complements $743 million in direct State aid provided for local road and bridge projects that helped renew approximately 3,700 lane miles of road across New York State.

“New York continues to make nation-leading investments in the renewal and modernization of the State’s roads, bridges, transit systems and airports,” Governor Cuomo said in a statement. “These investments are laying the foundation to ensure sustained growth throughout the 21st century in tourism, business and workforce development, and economic opportunities.”

This sustained infrastructure investment will enhance the safety of the State’s highways and reduce roadway roughness, making these pavements more fuel efficient. The projects announced today will begin this spring and will be completed during the winter of 2020.

“The increasing frequency and intensity of extreme weather has had devastating impacts on the State’s transportation network,” said State Department of Transportation Commissioner Marie Therese Dominguez said. “Through the renewal and hardening of our State’s infrastructure, New York continues to support the rejuvenation of our local communities and regional economic growth.”

This infrastructure funding is supported through the New York State Department of Transportation’s five-year capital plan. Through sustained investment in transportation infrastructure, including this latest infusion of State funds to revitalize its roadways, New York State is enhancing the quality of life for all New Yorkers.

Senator Tim Kennedy, Chair of the Senate Committee on Transportation, said, “New York sees our fair share of tough winters, which deteriorate our roads, create potholes, and cause frustration for drivers statewide. It’s imperative that we’re dedicating significant state resources to ensure these roads are properly repaired and maintained. With this investment announced by the Governor, the state is prioritizing safety, continuing to build robust infrastructure networks, and ultimately fueling a stronger economy.”

“I welcome the additional monies dedicated to renewal of State roadways impacted by extreme weather announced by Governor Cuomo,” said Assembly Member William B. Magnarelli, Chair of the Assembly Committee on Transportation, said. “Our infrastructure is constantly in need of repair, especially roads impacted by severe weather events. I look forward to working with the Governor in implementing this funding.”
