Up to 20 miles of road in Kirkwood are being updated thanks to New York State money.

State Senator Fred Akshar says $1.8 million will cover road work with a specialized cold mix pavement.  The Republican says $400,000 was secured through the State and Municipal Facilities Program of the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York.

The roads on the initial list for cold mix paving in Kirkwood are: Badger Road, Canfield Road, Cedarhurst Road, Duell Road, Ellis Road, Fox Hollow Road, Harvey Smith Road, Krager Road, Kutalek Road, Springer Road and Zimmer Road.
