The New York State Department of Transportation is seeking proposals for the Bridge NY Program. This program provides funding to municipalities across New York State for the construction or repair of bridges or culverts. In determining which projects will be selected, the Bridge NY Program factors in the capital needs, importance of the facilities, possible restrictions and potential risk and structural resiliency.
Cities, counties, towns, tribal governments or any political subdivisions authorized to receive state or federal transportation funding are eligible to apply. Up to $5 million is available per project with $200 million being distributed in total. The deadline for application is ept. 9. Contact the NYS Department of Transportation at 518-402-8177, e-mail BridgeNY@dot.ny.gov or visit http://www.dot.ny.gov/BRIDGENY for more information.
