JAMESTOWN – It was a “record year of roadwork” in the City of Jamestown, according to municipal leaders who provided an overview of projects in 2021 as the year comes to an end.
The Jamestown Department of Public Works says over 18,000 square feet of new blacktop pavement and 57,000 square feet of pavement surface treatment took place.
Furthermore, the historic brick streets received some tender love and care with 7,900 square feet of brick repair taking place.
In addition, accessibility for pedestrians was highlighted with 90 new handicap ramps completed and over 5,800 feet of new sidewalks installed.
Officials say the work was bolstered with additional funding from New York State after the state cut 20 percent of the aid last year.
