Goodbye potholes, hello smoother roads in 2020

first_img“I mean you’ve driven the roads, you see what needs to be done. You see a lot of temporary repair out there. This is actually going to allow us to do a full renewal of this section, and a lot of other sections across the region,” said Scott Cook, the public information specialist for NYSDOT Region 9. More than $14 million of that funding is coming to the Southern Tier to help patch up cracks and potholes created by severe weather. The DOT says these repairs could not have come at a better time. The DOT says instead of just temporary measures to repair the roads, this funding will make it possible for complete renewal projects to take place. HARPURSVILLE (WBNG) — New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced this week more than $151 million in funding to fix roads as part of the PAVE-NY initiative. The only rule is projects have to be started and completed in 2020. The Department of Transportation says when water gets underneath the surface of the road, it expands and contracts due to the changing temperatures, leading to the nasty cracks and potholes so common in the area. Cook said work will begin as soon as the last freeze is over, most likely early spring, and will have to be completed by the time winter rolls around again.last_img read more

He also showcased some of his work and talked about how pottery played a critical roll in history. Students all the way from kindergarten to the eighth grade got to marvel in the creations. They really enjoyed the animal creations he was able to make out of clay.“It was really cool,” said Student Cecelia Weaver, “When he showed all of the animals and he made this huge bull, we got to see all of his other creations like the huge vase he made with all of the designs on it.”Well, it was cool when he made the trunk, he would just put it on the spinning wheel, and he just kept going up with it, and then he made the ears and eyes,” said Student Caden DeCaire. “It was pretty cool.”Machulis has been practicing pottery for over 40 years. He’s crafted as a teacher, professional, and just out of pure passion for this unique hobby. He’s always happy to show children the power and fun parts of the craft.“Kids asked me about that, you know, well do you do this for a living, a job?” said Machulis. “I do it out of love, not because I’m going to get rich, it’s just always stuck with me, so their is not a ton of us running around.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: All Saints Catholic School, Alpena Catholic Schools, Ceramicists, Ceramics, Live Demonstration, PotteryContinue ReadingPrevious Salvation Army Grateful for Additional Donations From the CommunityNext World AIDS Day: Health Department Raises Awareness on HIV and AIDSlast_img read more
