This year, our annual conference will be held at the Hilton in Saratoga Springs, New York, September 15th- 18th. This years theme, “Walk a Mile in Our Shoes” focuses on the ever-changing challenges faced by our Highway Superintendents. As the seasons change, so do the tasks at hand. This year’s educational sessions will concentrate on the many hats we wear and the diverse tasks we face on a day-to-day basis.

Letter to the Governor
The New York State Association of Town Superintendents of Highways joined with the New York State County Highway Superintendents Association (NYSCHSA) to urge Governor Cuomo to ensure that New York’s system of local roads and bridges are properly funded in this year’s budget. Maintaining a safe, functional transportation system is critical to ensuring a strong and prosperous state.
The Association has updated their 2007, 20 Year Needs Assessment of Local Highway and Bridge Infrastructure.
Local system pavement need over the next 15 year period is estimated at $31.95 billion. Local system bridge need over the upcoming 15 year period is $2.85 billion. Given that 46% of the vehicle miles travelled in New York are on local roads, then local governments should be receiving an additional $1.3 billion annually.
