SYRACUSE Central New York will see an additional $29.7 million for road and bridge work.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday the funds would be made available for 15 NY Works projects across Onondaga and Madison Counties. The projects will fix deteriorating bridges and roads and create jobs for local job-seekers.
"The New York Works Program is not only an investment to improve the safety of the roads and bridges in our community but these significant transportation projects will aid in our state's economic recovery," said Assemblyman William Magnarelli.
The funds will be sent to "expedite" projects, looking to create new jobs and address the deficient roadways and bridges.
