Late last week, Governor Kathy Hochul announced nearly $100 million dollars towards funding for 30 communities throughout the state for projects that will promote alternative and environmentally friendly modes of travel. Alternatives included walking, biking, or utilizing public transportation.

Funding was made available through the Federal Highway Administration’s Transportation Alternatives Program, or TAP, with the funding then being administered by the NYS Department of Transportation.

“Since my first day in office, I have invested in expanding multi-modal travel options for New Yorkers across the State,” Governor Hochul said. “By giving communities the tools they need to expand alternative modes of travel, we are helping to reduce emissions while creating a healthier and more vibrant transportation system that benefits all New Yorkers.”

The Village of Dryden was awarded $4,112,000 dollars for the construction of new sidewalks. The new sidewalks are to be along Mott Road, North Road, Route 13, Enterprise Drive, Ellis Drive, Freeville Road (by the Middle and High School), and Union Street (near the elementary school).
