Of the funds, $240,000 will be used to mill and resurface Genesee Street from Ballantyne Brae to Arnold Street; $190,000 will go to mill and resurface Genesee Street from Eagle Street to Cornelia Street and $170,000 will be used to mill and resurface Memorial Parkway from Sherman Drive to Zoo Road.

"The deep freeze of this past winter was hard on many local roads, resulting in craters and cracks that have frustrated motorists who use these streets daily," Griffo said.

Griffo said in addition to the CHIPS and winter weather allocations, Utica needed more funds to take care of two of it's most used roads.

the money will come from a state multi-modal transportation fund, which is administered by the New York Department of Transportation.
