ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The state is providing $67 million in funding for 63 bicycle, pedestrian and multi-use pathway projects.

The projects include the addition of accessible sidewalks, improved pedestrian access to public transportation, new bicycle and pedestrian facilities and conversion of abandoned railroad corridors for trail use.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the projects will provide new tourism and recreational opportunities for New Yorkers and visitors.

The money comes from the Federal Highway Administration and is administered by the state Transportation Department. The grants cover 80 percent of the cost of each project.
