Governor Hochul Announces $2.8 Million of Federal Infrastructure Funding for Road Improvements in Allegany County
Belmont, NY…. The Allegany County Democratic Committee is pleased to announce that Governor Kathy Hochul has approved $2.8 million in federal infrastructure funding to improve roads in Allegany County.
This is part of $100 million in statewide road resurfacing improvements funded under the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, signed into law by President Biden in November 2021. The Act provides historic investments and funding for transportation and road improvements, rural broadband access, and clean energy investments to create jobs and rebuild and improve America’s aging infrastructure.
Allegany County residents will benefit from $1.8 million to resurface I-86, Route 305, and Route 446 in the Town and Village of Cuba, and $1.0 million to resurface Route 19 from the Pennsylvania state line to Stannards in the Town of Willing.
Nearby counties are also receiving significant road investments that will benefit Allegany County motorists. A total of $12.9 million is expected to be provided to resurface and improve roads in the Western New York region. Planning is now underway for these projects, and resurfacing will begin in the spring of 2024.
The Allegany County Democratic Committee promotes and supports effective government at the federal, state and local levels to improve the quality of life for Allegany County residents.
