Millions in federal funding earmarked for Co-op City to ease traffic congestion
More than $9 million in federal funding has been earmarked for Co-op City in an effort to ease traffic congestion.
The funding, which is part of a $300 trillion transportation bill currently in Congress, would go towards upgrading roadways, and building on and off ramps to the Hutchinson River Parkway. In addition, money would be spent to build a service road along I-95 to help improve the traffic flow near Co-op City. Some of the funding would also go towards an environmental impact study and repairs to Bronx sidewalks and curbs.
The bill must still go to the Senate and then onto the president for approval.
