The City of Utica will be getting $600,000 in state funding for repairing two roads.

Senator Joseph Griffo says Utica needs additional money, independent of its CHIPS allocation, to take care of its two most used roads.

The money will be used for the following projects.

  • $240,000 to mill and resurface Genesee Street, from Ballantyne Brae to Arnold Street.
  • $190,000 to mill and resurface Genesee Street, from Eagle Street to Cornelia Street.
  • $170,000 to mill and resurface Memorial Parkway, from Sherman Drive to Zoo Road.

The money will come from a fund administered by the State Department of Transportation.
