A project that involves repaving work on Central Avenue, a major thoroughfare in Yonkers and lower Westchester, is set to be completed by mid-August, officials said. 

Work began on the Central Avenue Repaving Project on June 3, officials said in a statement. 

That's after state Senator Shelley Mayer, then an assembly member, secured $1 million to repave a section of Central Avenue in Yonkers beginning just north of the New York State Thruway overpass northward to Stokes Road in 2017.  

"Maintaining our local roads and highways is pivotal to the success of our communities and small businesses."

Repaving consists of removing the existing surface and replacing it with new asphalt from curb to curb. 

Additionally, the pedestrian sidewalk ramps will be improved with new or enhanced pedestrian signage.
