ALBANY, N.Y. – New York State has designated $357 million to pavement projects across the state, using environmentally-conscious methods, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Cuomo says these projects will be completed using construction techniques that reduce fuel consumption and decrease greenhouse gas emissions.
"New York continues to lead the nation in demonstrating that infrastructure investments supporting economic growth can be balanced with protecting our precious environmental and natural resources," said Cuomo.
