Highway superintendents across NYS want more funding to pave local roads

The New York State Highway Superintendent Association is urging Governor Andrew Cuomo to increase funding for local roadways.

“Those funding streams are very critical and it’s a unifying thing,” says Bob Kiley, the highway superintendent for Irondequoit. He spoke to 13WHAM-TV about the importance of more funding. “Every municipality is going to say they wish they had additional resources and additional funds to put forth better services.”

The program is called Pave New York, which for several years has helped pay for resurfacing roads. That program’s funding has expired though.

The hope is for funding to be included in the upcoming budget. However, the state is facing a major deficit.
