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 $311 billion infrastructure plan to build the new New York. It is the largest infrastructure and development plan in the nation.
Governor Cuomo's administration has restored the public’s faith in government’s ability to get big projects done on time and on budget. Completed projects include the new Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge between Rockland and Westchester counties, the Kosciusko Bridge connecting Brooklyn and Queens, and fully restored the L Train tunnel without a major shutdown — all of which were completed ahead of schedule.
COVID-19 did not halt New York’s aggressive infrastructure program. New York State does not just talk about moving vital infrastructure projects forward, it actually gets them done.
A Revised Approach
L Project Tunnel Rehabilitation
Governor Cuomo intervened on this project to avoid the L train shutdown for commuters while the MTA repairs significant damage to the Canarsie Tunnel caused by Superstorm Sandy.
