Governor Wolf Announces Transportation Investment to Support City of Coatesville
February 09, 2018
Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today announced that a transportation investment he’s making in the City of Coatesville is a key step in making the Coatesville Gateway Redevelopment revitalization project a reality.
The nearly $1.3 million grant to DEPG Coatesville Associates, LP will kick off intersection improvements to Route 82 (First Avenue) and multimodal enhancements to Route 82/3070 (E. Lincoln Highway) and E. Diamond Street that will improve traffic flow, efficiency and safety.
“Transportation investments are key to economic growth, and I am proud to help the City of Coatesville realize its full potential,” Governor Wolf said. “The community is invested in this revitalization project and these traffic improvements will make travel easier and safer as the city grows.”
The overall gateway redevelopment project is an estimated $23 million investment in this key entrance to the city, which is anticipated to bring additional development and reinvestment.
The announcement builds on previous investments the Wolf Administration has made in the city’s revitalization efforts, including the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s partnership with the city’s Redevelopment Authority to build the new Coatesville Train Station.
