Zeldin’s Safe Bridges Act Becomes Law


The Safe Bridges Act, a bipartisan piece of legislation to ensure funding for New York infrastructure, was signed into law by the president on December 4.

The act was introduced by Representatives Lee Zeldin and Sean Patrick Maloney in July of this year to restore federal funding that had been cut off by the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act of 2012, which was designed to consolidate national highway funding programs.

Under the Safe Bridges Act, more than 80 bridges and overpasses across the 1st Congressional District, which includes most of Suffolk County, will be eligible for federal funding. Among them are 21 in Southampton Town and three in East Hampton Town.
