ALBION – The village of Albion Department of Public Works is repaving West State Street today with help from the highway departments from Orleans County and the towns of Albion, Barre and Gaines, which all hauled dump trucks full of blacktop.

The village and the local municipalities share equipment and manpower for many projects. The village on Tuesday paved Beaver and Erie streets, as well as an alley by the canal running along Krantz Furniture.

The State Street project is the longest stretch of road work planned by the village. The DPW also plans to repave a street at Mount Albion Cemetery.
