ALBANY, N.Y. (WENY) - The southern tier region will be receiving nearly $52.8 million to help rehabilitate and replace local bridges.

According to Governor Kathy Hochul's office, the funding is part of the state's Bridge NY initiative. The program supports efforts to improve infrastructure and make local communities more resilient to the impacts of climate change.

"New York State is making historic investments to modernize our infrastructure and we are committed to working with our partners in local government to help ensure that their bridges and culverts are ready to meet the challenges of global climate change," Governor Hochul said. "The BRIDGE NY program provides essential funding directly to local governments to enhance the safety, resiliency, sustainability and reliability of local infrastructure, allowing more than 140 bridges to better withstand extreme weather events and keep New Yorkers safe."
