Senator Gillibrand Works to Fund Bridge Work in the Southern Tier
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is touting a new measure to give state the authority to use more federal funds on local bridge improvement.
This is good news for Broome County. 29 of its bridges are labelled structurally deficient. 103 are considered structurally obsolete. In other counties such as Delaware, Tioga and Chenango county a number of bridges have the same labels. Gillibrand says her measure has one more step, it must be signed into law by the President.
