Southeast Queens senator announces record funding for local road repairs and maintenance


Queens streets will be improved under record funding in the state budget.

State Senator Leroy Comrie joined colleagues at Queens Borough Hall Friday, May 14, to announce the city will receive $150 million for local road repairs and maintenance, marking a nearly 40 percent increase in infrastructure funding compared to last year’s allotment.

“New York City’s drivers, bus riders, cyclists and pedestrians deserve quality streets, and thanks to the efforts of Leader Stewart-Cousins, Senator Kennedy and the Senate Majority Conference, New York City is receiving record funding to repair and rebuild local roadways,” Comrie said. “This monumental investment in our road infrastructure is desperately needed and crucial for our city’s post-COVID recovery.”
