The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) is soliciting candidate projects for funding under the BRIDGE NY program. The BRIDGE NY program provides enhanced assistance for local governments to rehabilitate and replace bridges and culverts.

Eligible Projects:

  • Bridge projects must be on a public roadway that carries vehicular traffic; be eligible for Federal aid; and shall follow the federal aid process.
