Four New York Projects on Trump’s Infrastructure List

Four giant infrastructure projects in New York State, totaling nearly $29 billion, may be funded through President Donald Trump’s promised national infrastructure program. A preliminary list, provided to the National Governor’s Association by the Trump transition team, includes about 50 infrastructure projects nationwide, totaling at least $137.5 billion, according to documents obtained by McClatchy’s Kansas City Star and The News Tribune.

Here are the projects on the list in New York:
– Second Avenue Subway Extension: $14.2 billion
– Gateway Rail Tunnel between New Jersey and New York: $12 billion
– Expansion of the Port Newark Container Terminal: $2.2 billion
– Champlain Hudson Power Express hydroelectric plant: $2.2 billion

The documents include a suggestion that half of the money for these project would come from private sources.
