Montrose, Pa. (WBNG Binghamton) In the last year, Susquehanna County roads have seen more damage than they have in the past 30 years, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

PennDOT met Thursday afternoon to talk about a busy construction season this summer.

The group said they will be able to get a lot done with the help of Act 89, passed by the state legislature last fall.

"In Susquehanna County, a lot of that money is going... anything that is a dark blue circle, dark blue line here, is money that is coming from that bill," said PennDOT Regional Press Director James May, "that's being put right back into the roads and bridges as well."

55 miles of roads that were not originally going to be paved, now will be due to the funding, said PennDOT.

Those paving projects include portions of Routes 29, 92 and 706.
