Local Multimodal Project Awarded Funding

HARRISBURG – A Lycoming County roadway project will receive Multimodal Transportation funds from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), according to Senator Gene Yaw (R-23).

PennDOT evaluated 251 applications totaling more than $282 million and made selections based on safety benefits, regional economic conditions, the technical and financial feasibility, job creation, energy efficiency, and operational sustainability.

As announced, $95,000 will be awarded to Armstrong Township for roadway construction along Mosquito Valley Road.  The project will improve structural stability, safety, and pavement drainage and safely provide for multimodal uses.

The Multimodal Transportation Fund was created by Act 89, enacted in November 2013, Pennsylvania’s far-reaching transportation funding plan. For the first time, transit, aviation, rail freight and pedestrian and bicycle modes obtained dedicated sources of funds, putting the modes on a firmer footing for future initiatives.
