Bridge NY Program Solicitation

Building upon Governor Cuomo’s unparalleled investment in transforming New York’s transportation infrastructure, the State is making available $200 million in enhanced assistance for local governments over the next two-years to rehabilitate and replace bridges and culverts statewide.  This investment in local transportation infrastructure will support the needs of the traveling public, movement of goods and regional economic competitiveness.

The BRIDGE NY program, administered by the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), is open to all municipal owners of bridges and culverts. Projects will be awarded through a competitive process and will support all phases of project development. Projects selected for funding under the BRIDGE NY Initiative will be evaluated based on the resiliency of the structure, including such factors as hydraulic vulnerability and structural resiliency; the significance and importance of the bridge including traffic volumes, detour considerations, number and types of businesses served and impacts on commerce; and the current bridge and culvert structural conditions.  NYSDOT will be accepting applications for this opportunity through September 9, 2016.
