They include new and improved sidewalks, trails and bike paths, crosswalks, safety upgrades at traffic intersections and expanded public transportation services around the state.

The money will pay for up to 80 percent of the work.

Cuomo, a Democrat, says the money is "critical" to expanding transportation options that are healthier for people and better for the environment.
