Rebuilding and Reimagining New York Infrastructure

To grow New York's competitiveness in the 21st century global economy, New York State is building today for a better tomorrow with a $100 billion infrastructure plan to build the new New York. It is the largest infrastructure and development plan in the nation.

New York State constructed the Mario M. Cuomo Bridge to replace the aging Tappan Zee Bridge on time and on budget; a new LaGuardia Airport that's underway; a 1.2 million square foot expansion of Javits Convention Center; a record $27 billion to strengthen roads and bridges Upstate; an unprecedented $29.5 billion MTA Capital Plan to expand capacity and reimagine the regional transportation system downstate; and so much more.

Under Governor Cuomo, New York State does not just talk about moving vital infrastructure projects forward, it actually gets them done.

A Revised Approach

Replacing the Tappan Zee Bridge

After more than a decade of discussion and delay, Governor Cuomo pushed the project forward in less than one year to replace the 62-year-old Tappan Zee Bridge.

Design-Build Construction Process

Championed in New York by Governor Cuomo, this process incentivizes the private sector to be creative on approaches that speed construction time and reduce cost, while the state also gets the assurance of cost certainty.

On Time, On Budget

The Mario M. Cuomo Bridge fully opened to traffic in September 2018, stayed on budget at $3.98 billion, and is designed to last 100 years without needing major maintenance.
