Big bucks to fix bumpy roads in Northern NY

Posted: Updated:

Forty-million dollars is coming to local governments in New York to fix up roads ravaged by the hard winter.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the additional state funding to help counties and communities repair potholes and patch up crumbling pavement.

Clinton and Franklin counties will each get more than $400,000 to repair roads. Essex County will get just under $400,000.

The city of Plattsburgh will receive $30,000 to improve its roads. Mayor James Calnon says this money will be helpful with minor repairs.

"While South Catherine Street is an almost $7 million project for about a mile, while you're doing some of the lesser work to get into the real infrastructure 30-thousand dollars is pretty significant," said Calnon, R-Plattsburgh.

Calnon says his team will assess which streets need the most work. And he hopes the big project on South Catherine Street will begin in May.
