PA Invests in 50 Multimodal Projects to Improve Safety, Mobility, Local Economies

Governor Tom Wolf announced that 50 highway, bridge, transit, aviation, and bike and pedestrian projects in 23 counties were selected for $44.5 million in funding through the Multimodal Transportation Fund.

“Transportation is critical to connecting communities and economies, and we are an important partner in bringing progress across the state,” Governor Wolf said. “These investments will improve overall mobility and safety while bolstering commercial projects.”

Reflecting Governor Wolf’s and PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards’ commitment to improving locally owned infrastructure, several of the projects will also help local governments address bridges and roadways in need of repair or replacement.

“Whether we’re making roadways more accessible to all means of travel or creating new connections for businesses investing in our communities, transportation is integral to our quality of life,” Richards said. “These projects will bring long-lasting improvements across the state.”

PennDOT evaluated the applications and made selections based on such criteria as safety benefits, regional economic conditions, the technical and financial feasibility, job creation, energy efficiency, and operational sustainability.
