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 $275 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.

Making Progress, Not Just Plans

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.
