ALBANY, NY – Mayor Kathy Sheehan and Department of General Services Commissioner Sergio Panunzio joined City Treasurer Darius Shahinfar and Councilmembers Jack Flynn, Deborah Zamer, Joyce Love, and E. Hyde Clarke – members of the Common Council’s General Services, Health & Environment Committee – to highlight the City’s historic $10 million+ pavement preservation investments in 2022.

2022 Street Resurfacing Statistics:

  • Nearly 70 Streets across the City of Albany – comprising more than 50,000 lane feet – will be resurfaced in 2022, a 30% increase from 2021
  •  7 Streets will be micro-surfaced utilizing a state-of-the-art technology that extends the life of the streets and reduces ongoing maintenance costs
  • 27 Sidewalks will be repaired and/or replaced as part of the pavement preservation program

Mayor Sheehan also announced that New Scotland Avenue between S. Manning Boulevard and O’Neil Road has been added to the 2022 repaving list. This project has been made possible in part through additional street maintenance funding provided by New York State, thanks to the leadership of Governor Hochul, Senator Breslin, and Assemblymembers Fahy and McDonald. The repaving project will also include a new striping alignment that will make it very clear New Scotland Avenue is a one-lane road in each direction.

Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan said, “Since taking office, my administration has invested more than $40 million in street and sidewalk revitalization, however we know we must invest even more to ensure our streets are in optimal condition. That is why I am so proud to have once again proposed a historic investment in streets and sidewalks, this year totaling more than $10 million. Thank you to Commissioner Panunzio and the Department of General Services for implementing these historic investments and ensuring our streets and sidewalks serve our residents for years to come.”

City of Albany Department of General Services Commissioner Sergio Panunzio said, “I am gratified that the City was able to resurface 30% more streets this year over previous years. This along with our new micro surfacing pavement preservation program residents will see a real difference in road travel across the city.  Thank you to Mayor Sheehan and the Common Council for providing the funding to take our program to a new level.”

8th Ward Councilmember and Council General Services, Health, and Environment Committee Chairman Jack Flynn said, “The hard-working employees at the City of Albany Department of General Services are second-to-none and it is great to see so many streets and sidewalks being repaired across our City this summer. I am proud to have voted for this historic investment in the 2022 Budget and I commend Mayor Sheehan and Commissioner Panunzio for leading the way and ensuring our residents have quality street and sidewalk infrastructure.”

Micro-Surfacing – DGS micro-surfaced three streets in 2021, and will micro-surface seven more streets in 2022:

  • Rutland Street (McCalpin to Sparkill) - 1st Ward
  • Mountain Street (Southern Blvd to Dead End) - 1st Ward
  • St. Joseph’s Terrace (First St. & Second St) - 3rd Ward
  • Hall Place (Second Street & Ten Broeck Place) - 3rd Ward
  • N. Second Street (North Pearl St to Broadway) - 4th Ward
  • N. Third Street (North Pearl St to Broadway) - 4th Ward
  • Clayton Place (Whitehall to Hackett Blvd) - 8th Ward

Micro surfacing (also referred to as 'micro asphalt') is a treatment laid over the top of the existing surface designed to seal, protect, and extend the life of asphalt surfaces. The application involves a self-priming paver, which applies polymer modified emulsion bond coat directly in front of the paving screen where an ultra-thin overlay of specialized hot mix asphalt is placed. Micro-surfacing not only improves the durability of the street surface compared to typical track coats but reduces life-cycle costs by 25 to 45% and adds 6 to 8 years of street lift when applied.
