ALBANY COUNTY, N.Y. – New York State Senator Cecilia Tkaczyk said Albany County will receive $7.5 million for road repairs.
Tkaczyk announced on Monday that municipalities in Albany County will receive more than $7.5 million for local highway, road, and bridge repair projects. She said the 2014-15 State Budget provides local governments with an additional $40 million for "extreme winter weather assistance" to help repair potholes and road surface damage caused by the harsh winter weather.
Every municipality in New York will receive about the same amount of CHIPS Aid as last year. However, they will also receive a share of $40 million in Extreme Winter Weather Assistance Capital.
