Keep New York Moving Forward by Investing in Local Roads and Bridges

As our leaders in Albany craft this year’s budget, it’s important that the final agreement keeps New York moving forward – literally. The New York State County Highway Superintendents Association is calling on our leaders in Albany to deliver fair funding for local roads, bridges and culverts.

Since the start of the pandemic, elected officials in every community of the state have emphasized the importance of keeping New Yorkers safe. We agree with their calls which is why we’re advocating for fair funding for transportation infrastructure. Every day, millions of residents – nurses, teachers, first responders, and families – drive in cars or buses to get to their destinations. In total, there are more than 12 million licensed drivers and 11 million registered vehicles in New York according to data from the U.S. Department of Transportation. Read More>>
