Bridge-NY funds includes bridge on Transit Road over Sandy Creek
Press Release, State Assemblyman Steve Hawley
Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) today announced nearly $6 million in funding will be injected into six, much-needed bridge and culvert repairs in Genesee, Orleans and Monroe counties as part of the BRIDGE-NY program that was a component of last year’s state budget.
A recent study by CNBC ranked New York’s infrastructure as some of the worst in the nation, with 10.5 percent of bridges ranked as deficient and 60 percent of roads classified as in poor or mediocre condition.
“I am very pleased to see our hard-fought victory for more upstate infrastructure funding is finally yielding tangible results,” Hawley said. “At a time when too many lawmakers set their sights on funneling more and more of our resources to fix downstate calamities like the MTA and LaGuardia Airport, it is more important than ever to focus on addressing upstate’s needs and that starts with our deficient roads, bridges and highways. Rest assured, maintaining the longevity of programs like BRIDGE-NY, PAVE-NY and increasing CHIPs funding will be among my top priorities come next year’s session.”
A list of BRIDGE-NY projects in the 139th Assembly District are as follows:
• $1.111 million to Orleans County for Transit Road over W Branch Sandy Creek
• $1.081 million to Genesee County for Sharrick Road over Murder Creek
• $907,000 to Genesee County for Tower Hill Road over Spring Creek
• $787,000 to the Town of Alabama (Genesee County) for Meadville Road over Canal Creek
• $686,000 to Monroe County for Lake Road W Fork over Sandy Creek
• $1.082 million to the Town of Batavia (Genesee County) for Upton Road over Bowen Creek
