TROY, NY – Mayor Patrick Madden today announced the City’s plans to pave an historic 12.5 miles of Troy roads during the next 12 months, part of an $10M investment in roadway improvements to complete the proposed paving schedule in neighborhoods across Troy during 2022 and 2023.
Mayor Madden said, “Since 2016, we have paved over 32 miles of roadway across the city. This represents approximately 22% of the 148.5 miles of our city’s streets, a major achievement in my administration’s efforts to rebuild roads and improve pedestrian safety. Touring route dollars allocated by New York State have been instrumental to programs that maintain our streets, and the additional resources from the state-funded CHIPS program are welcome news for our local paving efforts. We applaud Governor Hochul, Senator Breslin, Assemblymember McDonald, and our state representatives for increasing local roadway improvement funds in the state budget.”
Deputy Mayor Chris Nolin said, “We are excited for the next round of street paving, part of an historic investment in our city’s roads and transportation infrastructure scheduled to continue through next year. The support from Governor Hochul and the state legislature was vital to finalizing the city’s roadway improvement program to reconstruct over 12 miles of streets in neighborhoods across the Collar City.”
The City’s annual paving program receives funds from New York State, including the Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program (CHIPS), PAVE-NY, Extreme Winter Recovery (EWR), and State Touring Routes (STR) programs. In addition to the scheduled roadway improvements, these funds can also be used for signalization and pedestrian safety improvements like striping and crosswalks, drainage, and sidewalks.
Street closures and detours will be announced in advance. All scheduled paving work is subject to change in response to weather conditions and/or gas and electric utility work. Residents are encouraged to subscribe for email alerts associated with scheduled paving work at www.troyny.gov/connect
