    Improving WNY Infrastructure

    Governor David A. Paterson today announced that Western New York is expected to receive at least $72 million in transportation and infrastructure funding through the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). This critical funding will go toward much-needed highway and road repair, bridgework and other long-term improvements to the region’s infrastructure and will create an estimated 1,728 jobs. The Governor was joined by Senator Charles E. Schumer, Congresswoman Louise M. Slaughter and Congressman Brian Higgins in Niagara Falls to make the announcement.
