Schumer: J-O-B-S and Billions Of $$ On The Way To New York To Rebuild & Revive The Empire State’s Infrastructure

U.S. Senator Charles Schumer, today, announced that the bipartisan infrastructure deal he has negotiated in the Senate delivers huge for New York and will advance critical projects—from Gateway, to Penn Access, Second Ave Subway, the MTA/LIRR, East River Tunnels and more.

Schumer said these funds will ensure the bedrock of New York – its infrastructure, from water to sewers to subways, roads and bridges – gets long-awaited investments and relief needed to meet growing demands, boost the economy while safely and responsibly moving both people and goods across the state and beyond.

“The bipartisan infrastructure deal will be a record building and jobs boon for critical New York needs from Massena to Massapequa, and everywhere in between,” said U.S. Senator Charles Schumer. “Whether it’s the needs of the MTA, projects like Gateway, the Second Avenue subway, the East River Tunnels, Penn Access and others, this deal represents massive investments that will rebuild and revive the Empire State’s infrastructure. From clean drinking water to upgraded sewer to repairing bridges and subway tunnels, there is more work to be done, but billions are on the way to move on it, create good jobs and advance critical projects.”  

Schumer detailed the ‘federal pot’ as it relates to New York’s wins on transit, passenger rail, highways, airports and water.
