Looking to enhance pedestrian and biker options, as well as facilitate access to the transportation system at large, New York State last week announced $178.8 million to benefit 75 communities for environmentally friendly transportation projects.
“As demonstrated through the recently adopted State Budget and our historic capital plan, New York continues to make unprecedented investments so we can build back stronger than ever before,” Gov. Kathy Hochul said. “We’re investing in strategic initiatives across the state to improve quality of life, promote economic growth, and revitalize our communities. Most importantly, by advancing mobility alternatives, these awards will provide new opportunities and remove barriers for individuals in Environmental Justice Communities that have traditionally lacked adequate transportation access.”
