Local roads and bridges account for 87 percent of the roads, 52 percent of the bridges and 48 percent of the vehicle mileage logged in New York state. Local roads and bridges are a vital and indispensable part of our transportation infrastructure. Local roads are essential to every New Yorker. They generate jobs and support employment. They enable us to travel to work, school, doctors' offices, airports, dinner and ballgames; truckers to deliver goods; and tourists to visit our cities. Local roads are crucial to New York’s mobility and matter to all of us. NYSCHSA works to educate state representatives on the importance of highway and bridge aid to local governments.
