State Sen. George Maziarz is calling for increased state funding for road and bridge repairs.

“Western New Yorkers know how brutal this winter has been on our roads,” Maziarz said via press release this morning. “In every community I visit it is clear that more help is needed to do everything from fix potholes to rebuild bridges. More money for these kinds of improvements would go a long way towards enhancing public safety and the quality of life in our communities.”

“Every year local governments have to decide how to use precious CHIPS funding so it has the most impact and addresses the most important road surface problems,” added Maziarz, R-Newfane. “More CHIPS funding would lead to more repairs being possible, plain and simple.”

The Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program (CHIPS) was established by the state more than 30 years ago and remains a prime vehicle for delivering state aid to municipalities for road repairs on non-state highways.
