CORNING, NY – Today, Tom Reed is proud to announce that due to the recently passed Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill, New York State will receive $12.5 billion for roads, highways and bridge repairs.
“We care about the safety of New York State drivers and that is why we were proud to support the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill. We knew that the bill would be a tremendous benefit to our state, and the country as a whole,” said Reed. “This bill was over ten years in the works, and makes the kind of investments in real infrastructure that we desperately need.”
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, New York State has 1,702 bridges and over 7,292 miles of highway that are rated in “poor condition.” Under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill, New York State will receive $11.5 billion for roads and highways and $1.9 billion for bridge repairs.
