Albany, NY (WBNG Binghamton)  New York State increases highway funding for the first time since 2009.  More than $438 million will go to local road and bridge repair project throughout the state under the Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement program or CHIPS.

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Monday that the CHIPS program will receive an additionally $75 million in the 2013-2014 budget.

"This Budget is about jobs, jobs, jobs, and by investing in rebuilding our state’s transportation infrastructure we are helping to grow local economies and create jobs in all corners of the state," Governor Cuomo said. "During these difficult fiscal times, this $75 million increase in CHIPS funding is a big victory for our state's localities that will be able to use these much-needed funds to make repairs to local highways, bridges, and roads, and at the same time support job growth and economic development in their communities. I commend the members of the Legislature that worked hard to ensure that these funds are included in our state budget."
