Chenango IDA awarded grant for rail revitalization

NORWICH – The County of Chenango Industrial Development Agency (CCIDA) has been awarded $772,422 in funding from the New York State Department of Transportation to revitalize the Utica Main Line railroad.

The application, submitted in early November, sought $4,724,000 in funding from NYSDOT, which would have covered 90 percent of the cost to repair sections of the line that were damaged by floods in June 2006, and to replace deficient cross-ties where identified along the length of the line.
