Making New York state roads safer with new upgrades
NEW YORK, N.Y. — Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a new plan to upgrade local and state roads across New York.
The new plan will provide $62 million in upgrades to make roads safer for pedestrians Governor Cuomo said.
Nearly $2 million from the project's funding will go towards improving roads in the Capital Region area.
According to officials, 85 sites have already been upgraded since last fall and another 70 are expected to be finished by next summer.
The project includes adding traffic signals to crosswalks without them, upgrading crosswalk markings, and extending crossing times on crosswalk timers, Governor Cuomo said.
The new changes are part of Governor Cuomo's five year, $110 million dollar New York State Pedestrian Safety Action Plan.
