As we quickly approach pothole season, many drivers will be paying closer attention to road conditions.
The Oneida County Highway Department says it doesn’t get enough funding to keep pace with road repairs.
The Oneida County Highway Department has 172 miles of county highway it needs to reconstruct every 20 years.
That comes out to about 8.6 miles of road each year.
And over the years the cost to repair them has gone up.
In 2005, it cost about $76,000 to repair one mile. In 2014, that cost rose to $180,000 a mile.
