(WBNG Binghamton) Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Thursday that another $36 million will go to resurfacing projects on state highways throughout New York, including roads in the Southern Tier.

According to the governor, funding for these projects was accelerated into this construction season in order to repair damage from the harsh winter weather.

· Route 13 in Veteran, Chemung County

· Route 55 in Neversink, Sullivan County
