Monroe County officials announced Thursday a $180 million plan to repair roads, bridges and general traffic infrastructure across the county.

Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo says the country will invest $32 million this year and $180 million through 2024 for the project.

The county plans to create 4,000 jobs during the period.

Funding will go towards paving, highway rehabilitation, and bridge maintenance among other projects.

“As we seek to incentivize businesses to relocate and expand here in Monroe County, it’s vital that we make public investments that match and complement our anticipated private investments. Roads, highways and bridges are an integral piece of commercial activity and we will continue to prioritize infrastructure improvements to attract and retain local jobs for years to come.”
