The 2017-18 NYS budget has been adopted and thanks to the advocacy efforts of our members, NYSCHSA and the support of the NYS Legislature we received a significant funding increase for our local transportation system!
The Enacted Budget includes $50M additional for BRIDGE-NY ($20M for culverts and the minimum project threshold will be reduced to $50,000 from $100,000). Also included is an additional $65M in Extreme Winter Recovery Funding (EWRF) which, as we requested, will be distributed through the traditional CHIPS formula.
SFY 17-18 Enacted
BRIDGE- NY $150M
These critical funding increases would not have been possible without everyone’s participation at advocacy day and the continued support of our state legislators! Please take the opportunity to reach out to your Senator and Assemblymember to thank them for their efforts!!!

In 2013, the Association has updated their 2007, 20 Year Needs Assessment of Local Highway and Bridge Infrastructure.
Local system pavement need over the next 15 year period is estimated at $31.95 billion. Local system bridge need over the upcoming 15 year period is $2.85 billion. Given that 46% of the vehicle miles travelled in New York are on local roads, then local governments should be receiving an additional $1.3 billion annually.
