BATH | Upgrades to deteriorated sections of 11 heavily-traveled Steuben County roads will begin early this summer.
Steuben County Department of Public Works Commissioner Vince Spagnoletti said the work, which will cost a little more than $4.6 million to complete, will include recycling and blacktopping, surface treatment and full reconstruction.
Crews will begin recycling about 20 miles of seven county routes in early May, said Bryce Foster, DPW Deputy Commissioner. The projects are expected to be completed with a 1.5-inch blacktop overlay by the end of June.
Recycling and blacktopping work includes:
County Route 121, 3.3 miles in the Town of Cohocton - $440,000
County Route 129, 2.7 miles in the Town of Woodhull - $419,000
County Route 26, 1.5 miles in the Town of Campbell - $217,000
County Route 39A, .6 miles in the Town of Cohocton - $88,000
County Route 73, 4.1 miles in the Town of Lindley - $521,000
County Route 74, 1.2 miles in the Town of Pulteney - $216,000
County Route 87, 7.3 miles in the towns of Urbana and Wayland - $1,041,000
Spagnoletti said about 11 miles of thee county routes will receive surface treatment and one mile will be full reconstruction, Spagnoletti said. The cost of that work is expected to be about $1,665,000.
Work on these projects will begin in April when DPW crews dry grind sections of the roads and is expected to be completed in late June.
Surface treatment and full reconstruction work includes:
County Route 96, 4 miles in the Town of Bradford - $600,000
County Route 122, 3.1 miles in the Town of Prattsburgh - $465,000
County Route 124, 4 miles in the Town of West Union- $600,000
County Route 10, 1.2 miles in the Town of Bath - $129,226
Crews doing the summer work attempt to tie in with all residential driveways during the construction, Spagnoletti said. Anyone not pleased with a driveway tie-in can call the DPW at 664-2474.
Steuben County has 678 miles of roads, third-most of any county in the state.
A large portion of the summer road work will be paid through a $4.4 million Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program, also known as CHIPS funding, Spagnoletti said.
The work will be done by both Steuben DPW crews and area contractors.
