The NY Works program will be funding numerous infrastructure projects throughout the state and specifically here in the Mohawk Valley

“Creating jobs and repairing aging infrastructure are two major priorities in the Mohawk Valley,” said Assemblymember Anthony J. Brindisi (D-Utica). “These projects will help with both.”

Brindisi pointed out that there are five specific projects that will take place in the Mohawk Valley, three bridge work and two pavement preservation treatment projects. Funding for the projects include $1.5 million in state funding and $6 million in federal funding – which amounts to a total of over $7.5 million that will be invested in the region’s infrastructure.

Bridges:
  • Route 69 over Route 26;
  • Route 26 over Route 365; and
  • Route 69 over Route 365.


Roads:
  • I-790, Leland Avenue to Edic Road; and

“Not only will the NY Works program create good-paying jobs for hardworking families,” said Brindisi. “It will help make our roads and bridges safer for traveling and our communities more attractive to businesses.”
