NEW YORK, NY- Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12) today applauded the completion of the second span of the Kosciuszko Bridge. Rep. Maloney helped secure $670 million in federal funds, roughly 85% of the total cost, to fund the new bridge.
“Today is a momentous day for New York. After years of planning and construction, I am so thrilled that the Kosciuszko Bridge is complete. Governor Cuomo has proven, once again, that New York can build state-of the art projects on budget and ahead of time. I am proud to have secured $670 million in federal funding to transform a once crumbling bridge into a structure that will serve hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers each day. The Kosciuszko Bridge is an example of the great things New York and our nation can accomplish when we fund bold, innovative infrastructure projects. A city has to invest in itself to stay strong, and when I look at the Kosciusko Bridge and all the rest of our projects, I know that New York’s future is incredibly bright.”
