ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Communities across New York state are getting some of the nearly $70 million in federal funds being awarded for dozens of bicycle and pedestrian path projects.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the funds from the Federal Highway Administration will go toward 68 projects that will promote walking and biking and boost tourism and economic development from Long Island to the Canadian border.

The projects include construction of new bike and pedestrian facilities and the conversion of abandoned railroad corridors for trail use. The funds are administered by the state Department of Transportation.

The funding includes more than $25 million for projects in New York City and on Long Island, and more than $1.5 million each for projects in the cities of Albany, Buffalo, Rochester, Jamestown and Saratoga Springs.
