The Road Ahead

Renewing New York's Highway Infrastructure

| Events

The upkeep of New York’s 113,000 miles of roads and 17,000 bridges is the largest component of the state’s five-year transportation capital program, which must be updated soon. That presented an ideal time for the Empire Center to bring together leading transportation experts to answer some of the most pressing questions about New York’s infrastructure needs. This event took place at the Albany Hilton on November 19, 2014.
