Governor Cuomo Announces $20.1 Million Project to Reconstruct Interstate 390 in Steuben County

“Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that work is underway on a $20.1 million project to reconstruct concrete pavement on Interstate 390 in the towns of Wayland and Cohocton in Steuben County. The project will reconstruct a 5.7-mile section of I-390 between Exit 2 and Exit 3. This I-390 project is among the first in the state to utilize an unbonded concrete overlay approach, allowing for a stronger road without the need for a complete reconstruction. The project will be complete this fall.

‘Strong and reliable infrastructure is essential to support the safety of travelers and to bolster economic growth across the state,’ Governor Cuomo said. ‘By updating and improving this section of I-390 in Steuben County, we are taking critical steps to strengthen our transportation network in the Southern Tier to meet the needs of current and future generations of New Yorkers.’

Most work in the northbound direction was completed last year, while work this year will focus on the southbound direction. The Interstate serves 11,000 vehicles per day and is one of the major transportation corridors in the Southern Tier. Nearly 40 percent of the vehicles are trucks that are essential to delivering goods to support the local and regional economies. The highway is also a key link between the New York State Thruway and the US 15/Interstate 99 Corridor, connecting international trade routes from Canada to major trucking routes on the east coast.” As reported by the Office of Governor Cuomo
