NYS to spend $121M to improve rail and ports

  • / Updated:
  • Staff Report 

Governor Kathy Hochul announced on Wednesday that New York is dedicating $121.6 million to enhance its ports and rail commerce.

A competitive selection process will determine the projects to receive the funds, which aim to fortify safety measures and establish New York ports as a “global commerce destination.”

Applications will be accepted until October 6, according to Hochul’s office.

The funding is open to various projects, including track and bridge rehabilitation, yard and terminal and siding construction, dredging, and at-grade crossing for railroads. This initiative aligns with New York’s ongoing efforts to bolster ports, particularly outside of New York City, with Albany serving as a crucial hub for transporting infrastructure for renewable energy projects.
