The "New York Works" program is a $1.2 billion plan to repair the state's infrastructure and put people to work. The program is expected to repair 2,000 miles of roads and rebuild 110 bridges. The largest project is a $460 million replacement of the Kosciuszko Bridge between Brooklyn and Queens. It's a "new and smarter strategy for putting New Yorkers back to work by rebuilding our aging infrastructure and helping put our state's economy back on track," Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.
