Grand Island bridges to get $36M in upgrades in 2022
As the year comes to an end, the New York State Thruway Authority has announced that it spent a total of $317 million in infrastructure investments across the 570-mile superhighway system during 2021.
Fifty-two interchanges were modified due to the removal of toll booths following the enactment of cashless tolling.
Nearly $28 million were spent in the Buffalo division, including $19.5 million or pavement rehabilitation on a 13-mile section from the Pennsylvania state line eastward to Westfield in Chautauqua County. That project began in June 2020.
In 2022, the Thruway Authority plans to allocate more than $106.6 million to the Buffalo division, including $36 million for repairs and safety enhancements to the North and South Grand Island Bridges.
