The state of New York plans to infuse an additional $250 million into rehabilitating and replacing worn-out bridges and culverts through the Bridge NY program.

The program, which provides grants to municipalities in the state, began in 2016 with an initial $200 million. It has led to more than 125 bridge and culvert projects being funded, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office.

The program focuses on bridges in poor structural condition, those requiring weight restrictions or leading to long detours, or projects that improve economic development.
