The City of Albany, New York, recently announced a historic $14 million investment to revitalize streets and sidewalks via Mayor Sheehan’s 2021 City Budget and 2022 Proposed City Budget – plans that include funding to utilize RoadBotics technology.
In addition to using utilizing RoadBotics objective infrastructure assessment software to conduct an assessment of their road network, other pillars of the new program include using brine instead of salt crystals on streets for winter maintenance and the launch of a new micro-surfacing program.
Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan said, “My administration has invested more than $40 million in street and sidewalk revitalization since taking office, however we know we must invest even more to ensure our streets are in optimal condition. These three new initiatives will not only help us strengthen our investments in streets, but also help extend the life of our newly revitalized infrastructure and help protect the environment. Thank you to Commissioner Panunzio and the Department of General Services for engaging in these innovative solutions to decades-long problems.”
