ALBANY – State highway funding announced by the governor on Monday will help to complete three different road projects in Chautauqua County.
Governor Andrew Cuomo Monday announced resurfacing projects totaling $75 million will be completed this year on approximately 428 lane miles of state highways across New York. Funding for these projects was accelerated into this construction season in order to repair widespread damage from deep frost over the winter.
The governor said the accelerated projects are in addition to more than $437 million in capital construction funds dedicated to paving an estimated 2,311 miles of state roads in the 2015-2016 State Fiscal Year.
Projects in Chautauqua County that will benefit from the paving include:
- Interstate 86 eastbound from the Pennsylvania state line in Mina to the village of Sherman exit,
- Route 76 from the northern village line in Sherman to County Route 9 (Wattsburgh Rd.) in Ripley.
