Chemung County Department of Public Works list of 2022 road work projects



Chemung County, New York – The Chemung County Department of Public Works announced its full work program for the 2022 season, including bridge replacements, surface treatments, paving, and other projects.

2022’s DWP program will invest over $20.3 million in local infrastructure, according to Chemung County Executive Chriss Moss.

According to Moss, The County received more than $17.5 million from federal and state funding, and additional 2022 state highway funds will be used to offset the increased cost of materials and contracted services.

The County is reminding residents and drivers that these projects will likely create dust and noise. The County’s spray-patching truck will also make its way through the community to repair some of the winter’s potholes.
