The state on Thursday announced it is providing $40 million to help local governments make necessary repairs to highways and bridges following this year’s exceptionally harsh winter.
This funding, passed as part of the 2014-15 state budget, is a special one-time allocation to compliment the $438 million in existing State support for local transportation infrastructure.
All counties, cities, towns and villages will receive capital assistance through the program.
Localities will be able to use this money on capital projects to repair and improve infrastructure and to complement their core construction programs. To help brace for future storms, longer lasting roadway surfacing and overlay projects are eligible expenses.
Here are amounts for Oswego County and its cities, towns and villages:
Oswego County $289,598.09
New Haven $10,097.00
Oswego Town $10,949.81
