The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) recently completed six paving projects at land ports of entry in New York state using GSA’s new environmentally preferred asphalt specification. The ports are located at Champlain, Chateaugay, Fort Covington, Massena, Mooers, and Overton Corners. 

The work repaired and resurfaced roughly 1 million square feet of asphalt pavement using GSA’s new environmentally preferred asphalt specification. GSA’s work at these six ports is designed to improve the travel experience for nearly 5 million travelers annually, including nearly 2.5 million passenger cars, buses and commercial vehicles. Businesses in upstate New York and throughout the United States will benefit from faster crossing times facilitated by these improved roadways. 

Overall, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will invest more than $40 million in land port of entry projects in New York. Additional projects that are moving forward in New York State are construction and modernization projects at Rouses Point and Trout River, including the nearly $2 million contract for Trout River architecture and engineering services. 

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law includes a total of $3.4 billion for GSA to build and modernize land ports of entry on the country’s northern and southern borders. The investments will improve commerce and trade, create good-paying construction jobs, and incorporate new and innovative sustainability features.
