Senator Alesi Announces NY Works Projects for Finger Lakes Region as Part of NY Works Program

 

Budget Will Help Create Jobs and Promote Economic Development While Upgrading the Region’s Transportation Infrastructure

Senator Jim Alesi today announced a $32 million investment in the Finger Lakes Region for New York Works projects that will repair 227 miles of roads and 10 bridges.  Funding for these projects was included in the 2012-2013 State Budget passed last week and will be administered by the NY Works Program and Taskforce. 

The Taskforce will organize funding among agencies and authorities, as well as recommend financing options and ways to accelerate project construction – providing better coordination of state resources to maximize efficiency and economic potential.

"During this year’s Budget negotiations I fought hard to ensure that the Finger Lakes Region received its fair share of transportation funding," said Senator Alesi.  "With Governor Cuomo as a strong ally, we secured millions of dollars for our region to help accelerate the repair, replacement and improvement of our roads and bridges.  Most importantly, this crucial funding will improve the safety of our residents.  Also, as Chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Economic Development and Small Business, I recognize the positive impact that the NY Works program will have on our region's economy – allowing for vital infrastructure improvements while creating tens of thousands of jobs."

“For the second straight year, New York State has passed a balanced and transformative budget based on fiscal responsibility, job creation and government efficiency,” Governor Cuomo said.  “The cornerstone of this budget is the New York Works program, a new and smarter strategy for putting New Yorkers back to work by rebuilding our aging infrastructure and helping put our state’s economy back on track, just the way we have put our state government back on track.”

In addition to the NY Works funding, the 2012-2013 State Budget also provides for an additional $4.6 million in Consolidated Highway Improvement Program (CHIPS) funding, helping Monroe County’s towns and villages undergo local projects.

The I-390 corridor improvement project is a multi-phased project that will improve mobility, access and egress to the University of Rochester, as well as creating a gateway entrance to the university's campus as part of Phase I. Phase II involves constructing a new on-ramp that will directly benefit the expansion of the university's medical center, and subsequent phases will complete safety improvement work along the I-390 corridor adjacent to the entrance of the University of Rochester.
