NYSDOT Capital Plan

Friday, December 4, 2009

The New York State Department of Transportation's (DOT) capital plan has a significant impact on job creation and economic growth for Long Island.

The NYSDOT normally enacts a 5-year Capital Plan but due to the economic downturn and uncertainty about federal contributions the funding period was restricted to a 2-year period valued at $7 billion.

The agency is currently developing investment principles and projects in support of a new five-year Capital Plan that includes planning in tandem with the priorities outlined in the Regional Economic Development Councils (REDC).

Identified projects of significance for Long Island at this time include:

  • Pavement Resurfacing/Replace Median: NY 135 Between Merrick Rd & NY 24 - $40.9M
  • Safety Improvements/Reconstruction: NY 347 from NY 111 to Mt. Pleasant Rd - $32.2M
  • Reconstruct Portion of NY 110 - $29.5M
  • Bridge Rehabilitation: Robert Moses Causeway - $25.1M
