With no on time budget in sight, Governor David Paterson announced Tuesday that he is putting hundreds of construction projects in the state on hold.
The move affects the Alexander Hamilton Bridge replacement here in the city.
For now, only projects paid for with federal stimulus funds will move forward. The rest will have to wait until the state Legislature and the governor come up with a spending plan.
However, any project that addresses emergency health and safety needs will be exempt from the suspension.
