Cuomo announces new $151M to pave local roads, bridges

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced an added $151 million in new funding to coincide with $743 million in direct state aid for local road and bridge projects across New York.

The added funding is for fixing roads impacted by extreme weather events. The new funding is part of the PAVE NY Initiative.

“New York continues to make nation-leading investments in the renewal and modernization of the State’s roads, bridges, transit systems and airports,” Governor Cuomo said. “These investments are laying the foundation to ensure sustained growth throughout the 21st century in tourism, business and workforce development, and economic opportunities.”

In a joint statement, Senator Tom O’Mara (R-Big Flats) joined Assemblymen Phil Palmesano (R-Corning) and Chris Friend (R-Big Flats) said the funds would have a big impact.

“Beginning in 2013, the state’s recognition of the importance of statewide transportation funding continues to make a significant difference for our local governments, local economies, local property taxpayers and motorist safety locally and statewide,” they said in the statement. “We will continue to work with Governor Cuomo, our legislative colleagues and local highway superintendents and leaders across this region and state on this vitally important challenge and priority. The improvement and upkeep of local roads and bridges is a wise use of taxpayer dollars.”
