Public Hearing on New York State Department of Transportation Five-Year Capital Plan
New York State Legislative Office Building
12:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Recognizing that the state's five-year capital program is essential to our state's economy and infrastructure, Senate Transportation Chair, Martin Malavé Dilan announced that the Senate will be holding statewide hearings on how best to move forward with a cost-effective transportation infrastructure plan.
The Department of Transportation’s Five Year Capital Plan is a significant, essential first step to provide for the future needs of a modern, safe, reliable and efficient multimodal transportation system. The hearings have been called to give stakeholders the opportunity to identify those needs and the resources both necessary and available to meet them.
The 2010 to 2015, $25.8 billion five-year program identifies the resources to carry out the vital maintenance and rehabilitation of highways and bridges and to support public transportation, rail, aviation and port facilities.
