The bridges slated for repairs include: Route 30 over Cleveland Avenue, Route 30 ramp over Minavile Street, Route 30 over Route 67, Route 5 over Chuctununda Creek, Route 30 over Mohawk River East and West Arterial.

A $4.2 million CMAQ grant was secured for street scape, roundabouts, and sidewalk improvements throughout the city.
