ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Relief is on the way for New York drivers being rattled by countless potholes produced by a harsh, lingering winter.


Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Monday that more than $100 million in state funding will be spent on repaving and repairing state-owned roadways. The Democrat says the funds will be used for 84 projects that will renew nearly 1,000 lane miles of pavement across the state.

Nearly $300 million already has been committed for repaving projects statewide, with another $65 million in state funds set aside for extreme weather recovery projects for locally owned roadways.

The projects will begin this summer and last into the fall.

The winter has been followed by a cold, wet spring that saw 1 to 4 inches of snow dumped on some upstate areas Monday.

The state says approximately $9.4 million will be spent to pave 91 lane miles of the following roads in Oneida, Herkimer, Fulton, Montgomery, Schoharie and Otsego counties:

• $1.8 million to pave Route 294 from Lewis County line to the Boonville Fairgrounds in Oneida County.
• $2.8 million to pave Route 29 from Lasselville to Route 10A in Fulton County.
• $610,000 to pave Route 171 from Gulph Road to the 5S underpass in Herkimer County.
• $1.7 million to pave Route 10 from Palatine Bridge to the Fulton County line in Montgomery County.
• $1.1 million to resurface Route 7 from Merchant Place to Schenectady County Line in Schoharie County.
• $708,000 to resurface Route 28 from Tunnicliff Road to US Route 20 in Otsego County.
• $675,000 to resurface Route 7 from near Davis Drive to the Village of Otego line in Otsego County.
