N.Y. HSR awarded $727K in federal funds

Posted on July 30, 2010

U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced $727,000 for the State of New York to continue work on its high-speed rail program with the rehabilitation of the Buffalo-Depew railroad station.

The U.S. Department of Transportation has provided New York $1.7 million of the $151 million awarded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) for high-speed rail.

The money will provide Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility upgrades, reconstruction of the ticket counter, installation of a passenger Information Display System and platform repairs. The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) is actively working with the New York State Department of Transportation on additional grant agreements to further develop the Empire Corridor.

FRA has released more than $136 million of the $8 billion down payment provided in the Recovery Act for the development of a national network of interconnected high-speed rail corridors.
