Most of the money is expected to go toward improvements for the Tappan Zee Bridge, lohud.com said.

According to Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office, the third increase in funding over the last four years will push off a Thruway toll increase until at least 2020, reported lohud.com.

The original proposal included a $300 million tax break for frequent Thruway riders but was rejected by legislators, lohud.com noted.
