County and town highway superintendents, public works commissioners and highway industry professionals converged at the New York State Capitol and Legislative Office Building in Albany on March 9th for the “Local Roads Matter” advocacy campaign. The groups urged the governor and state lawmakers to make the maintenance and repair of local roads and bridges a top priority in the state budget.
Local roads are a crucial part of the state’s infrastructure. As much as half of all vehicle miles traveled in New York State are on local roads. The maintenance, repair and strategic replacement of existing transportation infrastructure are required for safety, mobility and for the state to remain economically competitive. Providing much-needed funds for local roads and bridges also sustains jobs -- both public and private -- in highway-related industries and professions.
