Good news for NYC cyclists: Governor Andrew Cuomo announced $67 million in funding will be allocated for bike- and pedestrian transportation projects across the state. $14.8 million of that haul is going to the five boroughs, with projects like the Pulaski Bridge dedicated bike/pedestrian lanes, Clinton Hill’s Putnam Plaza, and the Hell Gate Pathway project all getting the nod for funding.
“We are modernizing New York State’s transportation system while making it safer,” Cuomo said in a statement. “From building new facilities for bicycles and pedestrians to supporting historic highway programs, these projects will provide new tourism and recreational opportunities for New Yorkers and visitors. We will continue to upgrade New York’s infrastructure to expand tourism and economic development while improving our communities.”
