Construction begins on state roads in local counties | News
Construction has begun on a $13.2 million contract to resurface 21 segments of state roads in Albany, Columbia, Rensselaer and Washington counties. The construction is being done through the NY Works program.
“With additional highway improvement funding provided under Governor Andrew Cuomo’s NY Works program, we are moving with these repaving projects all over the capital district region,” said New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) Commissioner Joan McDonald in a statement. “We know that improving our roads is good for business, creates jobs and makes getting where we have to go more pleasant and safer.”
NY Works will focus on improving pavement from fair condition to good condition and preventive maintenance will be done to help preserve the state’s infrastructure.
