WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Westchester will receive more than $1 million in state funding to fix damaged roads and bridges.

State Sen. Greg Ball (R,C,I-Patterson),  announced that the counties would be receiving funding as part of a $40 million statewide allotment in the 2014-15 New York State Budget. Westchester County will receive a total of $1,207,988.17, according to a press release.

Ball, whose district includes Cortlandt, Peekskill, Mount Kisco, New Castle, Lewisboro, Pound  Ridge, North Salem, Somers and Yorktown, is asking for the community’s assistance to identify dangerous potholes in need of repair.

“This brutal winter has taken a toll on all of us, but none us took it quite as bad as our roads. As the winter progressed, local governments struggled to stay on top of the weather while staying within their budgets. I was happy to work with my colleagues to deliver this much needed funding to help our local governments repair our roads and fix the potholes that this winter has left behind,” said Ball. “I am now enlisting the support of the community to help us identity the areas that are in dire need of attention. I have created a form on my website where residents can report potholes, so I can work with our local governments to expedite the process and get our roads back in good condition.”

The $40 million in funding will be added to the state's Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program (CHIPS).
