NY Works contract to help with bridge repairs
HUDSON VALLEY, N.Y. -- More than $29 million is coming to the Hudson Valley to make critical repairs to 13 bridges. Governor Andrew Cuomo made the announcement Wednesday.
The state DOT awarded the contract to construction contractor Harrison and Burrowes of Glenmont and design consultant Clough Harbor and Associates of Albany.
This marks the state's first contract under the design-build method, which combines design and construction services into single contracts.
The thought behind combining the two is that it could speed up the work as well as save taxpayer money.
The project is estimated to create around 410 jobs.
